Allyship is working with Shetha Alaskar from Fuse Washington to train impacted people (transgender & gender non-conforming people and their loved ones) on how to share their personal stories around transphobic bills and initiatives (including I-1515, the conservative-led anti-trans* bathroom statewide ballot initiative) with elected officials, media, and community members.

Reserve your spot in this training today! Please RSVP by 5pm on Friday, May 27th to Denechia Powell at denechia@allyship.org or 206.428.1986.
