TRANSGENDER AWARENESS WEEK
Transgender Awareness week runs from 13-19 November each year and leads up to Transgender Day of Remembrance on 20th November, a day to commemorate the victims of transphobic violence.
The purpose of Transgender Awareness Week is to educate the wider community about transgender and gender non-conforming people and the issues associated with their transition or identity. The TUC advice on how to be a trans ally is linked on our website and here https://www.tuc.org.uk/resource/how-be-good-trans-ally-work
This year, the union has produced a new poster design to show its support for our transgender and gender non-conforming members (attached). For copies of the poster please email email@example.com
In addition, the RMT badge will also be produced using the colours of the transgender flag and this will be a permanent addition to our range of RMT logo badges available through our shop.
