About this event
8th Annual City of Minneapolis Trans Equity Summit: Routes to Joy, Community, and Social Change Sunday, October 3rd, 3-5 PM and 7-9 PM
Monday October 4th, 3-5 PM and 7-9 PM
Programming will be in-person (location TBD) and virtual (via Zoom, Easy Virtual Fair, and Slack). Exact times of each component and names of presenters will be advertised as they are confirmed.
As we move through continued crisis and towards new experiments in being together, this year’s Summit is an offering. May it help illuminate paths towards joy, towards each other, and towards the creation of something new. The Summit is free and open to the public, and we encourage anyone interested in furthering trans equity to attend.
This is an event for trans/GNC community members to connect to resources and each other, and for potential allies to learn more about issues impacting trans/GNC community and how to integrate community visions through an equity lens. You can also join the discussion and share information about the event on Facebook at https://fb.me/e/27Um9VJB8.
The event is hosted by the City of Minneapolis and our presenting partner, the Women’s Foundation of MN, in collaboration with a number of sponsors, to be announced shortly. If you are interested in sponsoring, please contact the Division of Race and Equity at RaceEquity@minneapolismn.gov.

There will be IT Support available throughout the Summit via both Slack and Zoom chat.
Fragrances: we ask for everyone’s participation in making the Summit a low-scent event. If you are attending in person, please do not wear perfumes or other scented products to the event.

We will have volunteers with Psychological First Aid training, amongst other qualifications, providing participant emotional support and conflict resolution throughout the event as needed. They will be available via both Slack and Teams chat. In-person volunteers will also be available to provide directions. There is also a free healing justice space available for a few hours during the Summit where you can receive bodywork, tarot readings, and other support.
