Washington, DC 20005
Join us for a policy breakfast with Mara Keisling, Executive Director of the National Center for Transgender Equality. Raben Principal Daniel Penchina will introduce Mara and Principal Praveen Fernandes will interview Mara about the future of fighting discrimination and protecting the most marginalized LGBTQ folks in the current political moment.
The National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) is the nation’s leading social justice advocacy organization winning life-saving change for transgender people. Since founding NCTE in 2003, Mara has led organizational and coalition efforts that have won significant advances in transgender equality, including the inclusion of gender identity in the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, the first-ever Congressional hearing on transgender issues, and countless federal administrative and state-level wins.
As one of the nation’s leading voices for transgender equality, Mara is regularly quoted in national and local print media and has appeared on major television networks, including CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News. She was part of the first all-transgender television interview on Melissa Harris-Perry’s show in 2012.
