Fedelia Cross from the Pine Ridge Reservation, on Leonard Peltier and a new school to teach Lakota language and culture

Please join with us on this program in considering the needs of those who may not be trans-identified but who are actively supportive of transpeople. The Transgender Community benefits from the support given our cause by artists and activists struggling against other kinds of prejudice and bigotry. Let us return the favor in kind. By this collaboration, we all become stronger.
