Transgender Issues Work Group
The City of Minneapolis’ Transgender Issues Work Group was established in March 2014 to look at issues facing the Transgender community. The group’s goal is to examine issues, engage the broader community, and make policy recommendations for City government that will affect the lives of Transgender residents of Minneapolis.
