Inaugural Safe Zone event

Hosted by English Professor Michelle Blair, with
the Office of Students Affairs The Transgender
Awareness Panel and Discussion was a success,
with over 70 people in attendance. Three panelists,
Kelly J. Kelly, Robyn Adams, and Aron
Valdez (an SJCC graduate), spoke honestly
and compellingly about their experience being
non-gender-conforming. Q & A followed the
speakers.
Finally, Transgender Day of Remembrance
(which takes place annually, on Nov. 20) was
honored as names were read aloud from a partial
list of those who had been killed in 2016 by anti-
transgender violence.
Huge thanks go to Lezra Chenportillo of the
Transfer Center; Maria Avalos of the Student
Affairs Office; Judy Wessler of the President’s
Office; and President Byron Breland and V.P. of
Student Affairs Roland Montemayor, who make
sure that equity and inclusivity abound on our
campus. Look for more Safe Zone events next
semester.
