December 2-4, 2013

Berlin, Germany


Funders and representatives from the trans*movement came together for two full days of panels and interactive dialogues.

Advancing Trans* Movements Worldwide aims:

- Provide a forum for donors to learn more about the issues facing trans* communities as they work to realize their human rights and live in dignity.

- Provide a space for networking amongst activists, donors and allies who are concerned with advancing the rights of these communities.

- Identify areas that would benefit from more thoughtful collaboration and coordination between and among donors, activists and allies.xplore contradictions between the narrative advanced by the pharmaceutical industry about medicines, health and medical innovation and the realities of the business model, and to consider mechanisms to change the public narrative and increase corporate accountability in drug pricing, marketing and R&D.

The meeting is being organized by the Open Society Foundations and Wellspring Advisors, in partnership with Global Action for Trans* Equality (GATE ), along with a working group consisting of representatives from trans movements in Africa, Europe, Asia, North and South America, selected through an international open call process.
