TransActive Gender Project at L&C
该 TransActive Gender Center, a 波特兰 nonprofit that addresses the needs of transgender and gender-diverse children, youth, and their families, is transferring its operations to the Center for Community Engagement at the Lewis & Clark Graduate School of Education and Counseling. Its new name will be the TransActive Gender Project.
TransActive’s founder and executive director, Jenn Burleton, will join Lewis & Clark’s staff as program director of the Trans-Active Gender Project. She is a nationally recognized expert on transgender and gender-expansive children, youth, and families.
“When I began this work, there was essentially zero visibility, awareness, or focus being given to gender identity development and affirmation of gender-expansive students,” says Burleton. “Now, with Lewis & Clark as our home base, we’ll be able to expand our reach; educate and inform more people; and provide more support for transgender youth and adults and their families.”
