Trans Resilience and Storytelling in Latin America - A Conversation with Todxs Nós’ Alice Marcone and TranEmpregos
At WarnerMedia, we believe storytelling can be a powerful vehicle for change, not only in the hearts and minds of our audiences, but also in creating real change for and within our communities.
Throughout Pride month, we have been celebrating the LGBTQIA+ community and the progress made over the years - however we must also recognize and focus on the work still to be done tackling discrimination, stigma and the lack of protections for Trans communities across the U.S. and around the world.
In this latest CSR Issue Brief, we turn our focus to Latin America, looking at both the specific challenges facing the Trans Community and how activists, grassroots organizations and storytellers are working to change the narrative and reality for many Trans people in society.
Watch the conversation below and read the full issue brief to learn more, including how you can support the movement.
