Pursuing Equality

Cleveland-Marshall College of Law
Moot Court Room
1801 Euclid Avenue
Cleveland, OH 44115

Cleveland Spring SeriesLast summer, the Cleveland City Council finally passed an inclusive anti-discrimination ordinance that expanded existing protections to transgender individuals. Join us for a two-part program designed to arm you with the information and skills you need to put these protections into action, whether you are advocating for yourself, a loved one, or a client.

For the first hour, we will be joined by Ryan Clopton-Zymler, Community Relations Manager at the LGBT Community Center of Greater Cleveland, who will provide a cultural competency training for professionals working with transgender clients.  Beginning at 10:30am, Elizabeth Bonham, Staff Attorney for the ACLU of Ohio, will explain how Cleveland’s anti-discrimination protections work, and provide a step-by-step guide to navigating the administrative complaint process.

Presented in partnership with the Cleveland-Marshall Allies, Equality Ohio, the LGBT Community Center of Greater Cleveland, and TransOhio!
