TENI will launch the STAD: Stop Transphobia and Discrimination Report on Wednesday June 18 at the University of Limerick.
The STAD report documents hate crimes against transgender people in Ireland, and it is the first report of its kind. This campaign was launched in February 2013 to raise awareness about transphobic violence in Ireland and to enable the trans community to report hate crimes and incidents in a safe environment.
Join TENI for the launch of this ground-breaking research and panel discussion.
Date: Wednesday 18th June
Venue: Wood Room, Plassey House, University of Limerick (Map of campus here)
