Access to public facilities for transgender individuals is an important and potentially controversial topic for local governments across the country so, of course, they were talking about it at #IPELRA18, the 40th Illinois Public Employer Labor Relations Association Annual Conference! In part one of this engaging discussion, transgender panelist Sophie Michaels, Palatine Park District’s Michael Clark, and Ancel Glink’s Keri-Lyn Krafthefer talk about the appropriate terminology and definitions to use with transgender individuals. Sophie also shares her life experiences as a transgender woman, the challenges she’s faced, and the appropriate practices and expectations when transgender people want to access public facilities. How do your public facilities accommodate transgender individuals? Tell us about it, firstname.lastname@example.org!
