Sociologists for Trans Justice

Dear Friends,
The Media Outreach subcommittee of Sociologists for Trans Justice is assembling a database of experts on issues related to justice for trans people, so that journalists and others seeking expert opinions can easily contact knowledgeable sources. If you would like to be included in this database, please send a message to TransJusticeExperts@gmail.com. In your message, please include:

  • your name and pronouns
  • affiliation
  • preferred contact information (email, phone, other)
  • general topic areas (legal issues, employment discrimination, education, health, violence, etc)
  • a description of your more specific areas of expertise (public restroom controversies, participation in youth athletics, health disparities by race and gender, employment discrimination against trans women of color, etc). This will hopefully prevent you from getting called about things you don't actually feel comfortable talking about with the press.
  • recent publications of relevance

Thanks!
