Community Conversation Transgender Women of Color

Community Conversations: Embracing the Humanity of Trans Women of Color

with Diamond Collier, Karolina López, Pauline Park, Josué Argüelles, Rickie Houston, Tony Porter

Creating a world where all men and boys are loving and respectful and ALL women and girls are valued and safe is integral to the work we do at A Call to Men. Striving for inclusivity and intersectionality in our advocacy is essential to making that vision a reality for everyone, including and especially those at the margins of the margins. Our Trans sisters of color are too often pushed to the furthest corners of those margins, experiencing multiple forms of oppression all at once.

We gathered together as a community to facilitate a conversation with several of these incredible women to help define solutions that will be effective in ending the violence in their lives, and talk through how we can engage men to be a part of that solution.  Our guests Diamond Collier (Executive Director at Black Transwomen, Inc.) , Karolina Lopez (Co-founder of Mariposas Sin Fronteras), and Pauline Park (Chair of NYAGRA and president of the board of directors of Queens Pride House) were joined by our own Josué Argüelles, Rickie Houston and Tony Porter to talk through the unique challenges facing transgender women of color today.
