In 2018, Massachusetts will be the first state in the nation to vote on upholding transgender dignity in public accommodations. Join us at a literary educational forum with Joy Ladin, the first openly transgender professor at an Orthodox Jewish institution. Joy will read from her book "The Soul of the Stranger: Reading God and Torah from a Transgender Perspective" (due out November 2018).
We'll also learn from Taj Smith, Faith Organizing Director for Freedom for All Massachusetts, about efforts over the next seven months to defend the transgender people of our Commonwealth, and what we can do to help.
Organized by Ruach HaYam. Cosponsored by Asiyah, along with Keshet, Freedom for All Massachusetts, Congregation Eitz Chayim, Hadassah-Brandeis Institute, Temple B'nai Brith, Havurat Shalom, and more groups in formation.
