This Saturday, Equality California, Sol Collective, the Gender Health Center, Black Women United, and the California Endowment will host a free screening of Major! and KIKI, two films which highlight the lives, histories, and activism of trans people of color in the United States. Keyko Torres of Gender Health Center and Ebony Harper of the California Endowment will host a discussion and Q&A between films, and lunch will be provided free of charge.

We are inviting the Sacramento community to take part in this event as an opportunity to learn more about the trans community, ask questions, and discover ways to ally with trans men and women in the Sacramento area and beyond. Trans individuals experience some of the highest rates of exclusion, violence, and discrimination across the country, in our state, and in our community; we want to use this opportunity to promote tolerance and a greater sense of responsibility for one another.

The screening is part of the California Endowment’s #RiseUpAsOne campaign, which focuses on spreading the message that as Californians, our fates are intertwined, and when we stand up for all individuals -- regardless of race, sexual orientation, gender, religion, or background -- our communities are stronger, and we are all healthier.

What: Screening of Major! and KIKI, with Discussion and Q&A led by Keyko Torres and Ebony Harper. Lunch provided.

When: Saturday, December 2nd, 2017: 11a-5p

Where: The Guild Theater, 2828 35th St, Sacramento, CA

Who: Hosted by Equality California, Sol Collective, Gender Health Center, and the California Endowment

We hope to see you Saturday! Please RSVP at this link, space is limited.
