Texas Transgender Nondiscrimination Scholars
The Texas Transgender Nondiscrimination Scholars is a grassroots effort to look at strategic approaches to the issues of social justice and policy implementation in regards to the concepts of gender identity and gender expression. We invite all interested students, faculty, staff, and community members to discuss and share strategies in regards to implementing inclusion of “gender identity and expression” into institutional policy.
