Statewide TIES Pop-ups!

Virginia is a big state, and we know it’s not always convenient for folks to join us in Richmond for our annual TIES conference each fall. That’s why EV is taking TIES (Transgender Information and Empowerment Summit) on the road this summer and introducing our statewide TIES Pop-Ups! In July 2018, we’ll be bringing TIES Pop-Ups to Norfolk, Roanoke, and Winchester. 

TIES Pop-Ups will provide the best of what TIES has to offer, including …

  • trans-affirming mental health & medical consultations
  • name & gender marker change clinic
  • employment readiness training
  • how-to-tell-your-story advocacy workshops
  • get to know community organizations & resources.

Below are event and registration details for each of the three TIES Pop-Ups. We hope to see you there!

Special thanks to all of our cohost organizations (listed below) – who are working by and for trans people in each of these communities. They are doing important and life-saving work every single day, and without them, these TIES Pop-Ups would not be possible.

We’d also like to thank our wonderful Community Voices who are helping to spread the word about these events. To learn more about becoming a Community Voice for the TIES Pop-Up in your area, please contact [email protected]
