Trans* youth and their families face discrimination every day. They are not treated equally in school, at work, or in the public eye. This must stop. They deserve protection from discrimination, violence, and harassment.
We know that parents’ voices can be a powerful catalyst of change; we can empower trans* youth, their families, and NGOs and move forward to a Europe where LGBTI+ people can live authentically and free from fear.
Yes, we know there is still a lot to do if we want to change the pace, and we know that together we can.
That is why we are writing a manifesto, to advocate for trans* youth rights in Europe!
We invite parents of trans* persons, activists, experts and other individuals who advocate for the rights of trans* persons and LGBTI+ persons, to join a live-in conference held in Lisbon on 22-23 Sept 2022. This conference is part of ENP’s “Let’s Change the Pace” project co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme. The project has included three webinars already and will see the presentation of the draft of the Manifesto. We believe this face-to-face conference will help parents strengthen their advocacy role, keep up the momentum, and change the pace for trans* wellbeing in Europe.
