Transgender Issues Work Group 


Join us for the Minneapolis Trans Equity Summit on Sept. 25. This summit will serve as an introduction to the Workgroup, the process it follows, and provide a mid-point update to the community on the work that’s been done so far.

It’s also about empowering, inspiring and uplifting our community in a fun and engaging day as well introducing the community to resources available at the City of Minneapolis, including jobs, and opportunities to participate on City boards and commissions. Learn more and register here.
