8/7/17: Your Weekly Activist Events Roundup

Our hearts are still heavy from last week’s blow to transgender rights and respect, but this week, we’re turning that pain into tangible action. First up? Lots of Monday meetings, followed by action plans and training to round out the week. We’ve been inspired by Rihanna’s generosity, the Queen of England’s drinking capabilities (which come in handy when listening to President Trump, no doubt), and encouraged by the bravery of trans citizens like Sawyer DeVuyst, who served up last week’s Gender Diaries installment. All that to say, hatred is obviously no match for love. Check the full list of actionable items and events below.
