Transgender Empowerment & Awareness Week

Across the Country, Transgender Awareness Week is meant to help raise the visibility of transgender and gender non-conforming people.  At Mizzou, we celebrate Transgender Empowerment & Awareness Week to empower transgender individuals on campus while still raising awareness for the issues these communities face.
