Joint Statement: Trans Advocacy Week 2020
Over the past 3 years, every June, Trans Advocacy Week (TAW) has been a key event at the Human Rights Council in Geneva. This year, the COVID-19 pandemic makes it impossible for us to convene a regular TAW 2020. We don’t know when international institutions will come back to their usual work, international travel will be allowed, or meeting in person will be safe for all. But we do know that trans people and our human rights cannot wait for this crisis to pass. That is why we have come together to support trans people in these challenging times.
In June 2020, Trans Advocacy Week will take place virtually. APTN, GATE, ILGA World, RFSL, and TGEU will host a series of trainings, panels, and participatory sessions, ensuring accessibility, diversity, and visibility. More information will be released soon.
