On behalf of the House of Garçon, CDG Community and Center for Black Equality, we would like to invite you to an exquisite event “Sips and Scholars”-A liberating conversation of Trans Navigation through both life and education. We will be hosting this event on November 10th at the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) in Washington, DC.

This event aims to create a dialogue of shared experiences faced by individuals of the transgender community. Realities of anti-transgender violence, harassment, discrimination, HIV, Poverty, Lack of Legal Protection, barriers to healthcare and others the impact the social, physical and mental well-being of many transgender individuals in America has become too common. By creating an opportunity for transgender individuals from various walks of life and many regions of this county, T-Time, allows an opportunity for an open dialogue to create a cross-regional peer to peer support, best practices and lessons learned, vital to the success, and empowerment of transgender persons nationwide.

We will be honoring two high-school seniors or college students who are attending an accredited college or university who identify as Trans or Non-Gender Conforming with our first Trans Scholarship. If you are interested in applying for the scholarship, please submit your application here.

As we approach Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR), this event serves as not just a time to remember trans persons that have lost their lives to violence but create opportunities for networking and dialogue.

Light hors-d’oeuvres will be served and you will also have the opportunity to be present when we announce our first Trans Scholarship winners.
