March 31st, 2022
March 31st is the International Day of Transgender Visibility. This is an opportunity to celebrate two spirit, transgender, gender nonconforming and nonbinary peoples. It is also a chance to raise awareness of the discrimination faced by trans people worldwide.
Trans identifying people face ongoing pressure to change or conform in order to validate their identities. The past few months, in particular, have been a challenging time for the trans community as efforts persist to limit the right of trans people to exist equally and freely.
We must all continue to advocate with love and solidarity alongside the trans community so they may realize full and free lives.
Moving to Action
The International Day of Transgender Visibility 2022 is an opportunity to think and act in ways that make WRDSB schools trans inclusive spaces. We all play an important part in a safe and inclusive Waterloo Region.
The WRDSB works to create school communities where all students, staff and families experience a sense of belonging, safety and inclusion. WRDSB wants our entire community to know: You are enough, just as you are.
