More info from the organizers:
Trans Day of Action is our yearly march and rally, we would like you to come with your folks and march along with us. This year we are calling on all Trans and Gender Non Conforming groups and our allies to organize contingents for Trans Day of Action. A contingent is 5 or more people and will be listed as a contingent on Trans Day of Action materials.
We call for our communities of Trans and Gender Non-Conforming (TGNC) People of Color (POC) and our allies come together and join TransJustice as we mobilize for our 12th annual NYC Trans Day of Action for Social and Economic Justice!
This year we are centering and uplifting the resilient history of TGNC community power. We as TGNC People of Color (POC) recognize the importance of working together alongside other movements. We live in a time when oppressed peoples including people of color, immigrants, youth and elders, people with disabilities, women, Trans & Gender NonConforming people, and poor people are underserved, face higher levels of discrimination, heightened surveillance and experience increased violence at the hands of the state. We must unite and work together towards dismantling the transphobia, racism, classism, sexism, ageism, ableism, homophobia and xenophobia that permeates our movements for social justice. Join us this year as we continue our legacy of resistance and transformation and come together in abundant revolution.
This march will take place at Washington Square Park in the West Village.
The nearest accessible train station is West 4 St Station with the A, B, C, D, E, F, M lines.
The elevator is at northeast corner of West 3rd Street and Sixth Avenue (Also known as Avenue of the Americas).
The park is 2 blocks from the train station exit on W 3rd St and 6th Ave.
The March is roughly 16 blocks long, will step off at the park and return to the park. The park has many benches for seating. This will be a large mobilization outdoors which severely limits our control of being scent free. We will be in close proximity to trees and plants.
The restroom in the park is NOT listed as an accessible restroom, so we are currently trying to secure rest rooms in close proximity to the park that are accessible and will be posting that information as soon as possible.
We will have consecutive Spanish interpretation for our programming.
If there are any accessibility needs, questions, or desires you have that were not touched on in the access note, please feel free to email. Click here for more info.
