Shear Avory: We Can Transform California


As a multi-racial, Black and Indigenous, Trans-Gender-Non-Conforming femme youth of color and advocate, I am immensely appreciative of the opportunity to have represented youth inclusion and movement at the announcement of Transform California on Monday, April 18 alongside Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, West Hollywood Councilwoman Lindsay Horvath, Transgender Law Center Executive Director Kris Hayashi, Equality California Executive Director Rick Zbur, TransLatina Coalition Member Maria Roman, and community activists and allies.

Transform California is an unprecedented public education campaign spreading awareness and equality for transgender and gender nonconforming Californians. Founded by the Transgender Law Center and Equality California and led in development by 30 organizations, including GSA Network, Gender Justice LA, Familia Trans Queer Liberation Movement, TransLatina Coalition, ACLU of Southern California, and the Los Angeles LGBT Center, Transform California is at the vanguard of the growth, development, and wellness of our intersecting communities and in the intersecting movements of equality.
