Track Trachtenberg (they/he) will discuss their experience making sense of systems set out to destroy us—from the harms done by supposedly liberal government institutions to the coordinated rollbacks of trans rights by conservative politicians across the country. He will speak to the importance of finding our place in justice work and caring for ourselves, and each other, while we fight for our communities.

Track is a youth worker, community organizer, and facilitator and served as City of Minneapolis’s first Trans Equity Project Coordinator from mid 2019 to early 2023. This role served in the City’s Racial Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Department, which was nearly dissolved during their time at the City.
