Transgender Equality and Justice with Mara Keisling
Wednesday, April 10, 2013
7pm, AMU Ballrooms ABE
Mara Keisling is among the nation's leading voices for transgender equality. A self-identified transgender woman, Mara is the founding Executive Director of the National Center for Transgender Equality in Washington D.C. Mara is a graduate of Penn State University and did her graduate work at Harvard University in American Government. Mara frequently contributes to CNN and CSPA and is regularly quoted in the New York Times, the Washington Post, and hundreds of other national and local print and electronic media. Since 2003 when the NCTE was founded, Mara has won significant advances in transgender equality such as the passage of the first ever transgender-inclusive federal legislation, modification of the State Department rules for changing gender markers on passports, and the historic first Congressional Hearing on transgender issues. Mara will speak to students, faculty, and staff about transgender justice, challenges, and progress for transgender and gender non-conforming communities in the United States.

During the past year, the Multicultural Affairs staff reflected on and redefined its purpose and goals. While the centerís inherent purpose to serve and support historically underrepresented students remains, the center has grown to support the cross-cultural exchange within the diverse student body of Marquette. The name change is meant to better represent the growth and focus of the this area.
Fall 2012 Marks the 40th Anniversary of the Center for Intercultural Engagement (formerly the Multicultural Center) on Marquette's campus. Join Intercultural Engagement this year as we celebrate this legacy of diversity and our pursuit of inclusion.
