Truth Matters: Profound Impacts of Anti-Trans Violence in Our Current World
September 17, 2023 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Michael Munson, Executive Director, FORGE.
These days, we often hear the phrase “(the) truth matters.” It does.
For trans and nonbinary communities, part of the truth is the harsh reality that hundreds of anti-trans bills have been introduced, there has been a dramatic increase in anti-trans hate violence, there are overarching denials and restrictions in accessing healthcare, and there are daily violations of human dignity (including the simple act of addressing someone by their correct name and pronoun(s)). When we listen to the truth, we can take action to reduce additional layers of harm and create a more just, equitable, and loving world. Host: Deb Solis

For over 50 years, the Sunday Forum lecture series has showcased provocative, sometimes controversial, speakers discussing topical issues of the day: politics, the environment, health issues, the arts, education, and more. The Sunday Forum is held at 10:00 a.m. September through May. Speakers give a 45-minute presentation, followed by questions and brief comments from the audience. The content of Forum lectures does not necessarily express the viewpoint of First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee, but are meant to offer thoughtful topics which our members often pursue further on their own.
