United Nations Trans Advocacy Week 2023

United Nations Trans Advocacy Week (UN TAW) is a collective project by non-governmental organizations, offering trans activists a platform to make their voices heard on a global scale and in international human rights spaces. It’s a chance to bring attention to the challenges and discrimination faced by trans and gender diverse people and to promote equality, acceptance, and understanding.
