Transgender rights activist encourages students to create social change – Zachary Mellen – For The Diamondback

Students do not have to be policy or law professionals to become full-time social advocates, transgender rights activist Andy Bowen told students Tuesday.

Bowen spoke to about 15 students and faculty members in South Campus Commons about her work advocating for transgender issues in Washington, including working to improve health insurance coverage and birth certificate changes. The event was part of the Beyond the Classroom lecture series.
