As announced by our Board President, Natasha Rose Lombardi, yesterday, we have unfortunately cancelled this year’s Transgender Lives Conference previously scheduled to take place on April 25, 2020. As moral citizens, we must all take our part in following federal, state and local guidelines to slow down the spread of this global pandemic.
We did not take this decision lightly as we know the importance of this conference to so many in our community, especially our under-represented and under-resourced transgender and non-binary individuals. We are actively pursuing various avenues to deliver some of the content from the conference virtually to continue to serve our mission of promoting education and advocacy.
We thank those who have supported and shown interest in our conference. For anyone who has pre-registered and for all of our sponsors, I will be in contact within the next couple of days to initiate the refund process. For all of those who are interested and able, we are accepting donations to benefit the Connecticut TransAdvocacy Coalition. The conference makes up the vast majority of our annual revenue and without it, we will likely suffer a loss for the year.
If you would like to make a donation, please do so at paypal.me/CTAC2017 or by check made payable to CTAC via mail at P.O. Box 575, Hartford, CT 06141. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
In closing, we would like to thank you once again for all of your support and wish you all the best in health and happiness during this time. We encourage everyone to stay safe and practice prudent social behavior. As we go through the process of cancelling the conference, we ask for your patience.
The Connecticut TransAdvocacy Coalition is an entirely volunteer run organization that is dedicated to our mission and we will be working diligently to address any and all questions or concerns. Please feel free to reach out to email@example.com and be on the look out for new and exciting things to come from CTAC.
