**RESCHEDULED**
We apologize for having to reschedule this event – but due to significantly unexpected advocacy activity with Washington Apple Health (Washington’s medicaid program) — we have had to Reschedule the Gender Justice Awards to August 11th – 2015.

The 2015 Gender Justice Awards dinner will highlight and showcase the incredible activism of Trans and Allied Activists who have made incredible strides for Trans, Gender Queer, and Gender Non-Conforming people in the Pacific Northwest.

This year’s Gender Justice Awards will be hosted by Ian Harvie comedian and actor who appeared in the Golden Globe Award winning series Transparent.

Equipment rental

Our Views on ethical fundraising:
We ask attendees to come prepared to make an additional donation if possible, tickets are priced to be as accessible as possible for our community and are intended to cover just the cost of the event (catered food is expensive!). We recognize not everyone who attends can give, at our ticket prices we expect to only “break even”. Additional Gifts will go directly to Trans* Pride Seattle 2015 and Gender Justice League’s Education & Advocacy efforts.

Gender Justice League is committed to economic accessibility – 10% of seats (20) will be reserved for sliding scale attendance. Please email danni@genderjusticeleague.org if you are in need of a sliding scale ticket. Attendees can also sponsor one of these tickets.

Accessibility: GJL strives to make our spaces radically accessible. Melrose Market is wheelchair accessible. ASL interpretation is available upon request. This is a scent free and smoke free event. For more questions check out our event page or email jessical@genderjusticeleague.org
