Creating a change in you is not an easy task, Bringing an entire community together to Create Change in hard work from dedicated people who are living and breathing change for the masses. Joining CWT4R Wednesday Night will be Monica Roberts the TransGriot and Founding Editor Transgriot. Join Ina, Michelle, and Terry Boi as we talk about Creating Change and learn a little more about what we will be experiencing in 10 more days. Monica is a writer, blogger, history buff, and lecturer on transgender issues.  Monica’s an advocate with a special emphasis on not only getting African-American transpeople and other voices of color more involved in empowering themselves, educating the GLBT community about our issues, but also shedding light about the struggles of GLBT people in Africa, Jamaica and across the Diaspora.  Monica transitioned in 1994 and works diligently at educating and encouraging acceptance of transgender people in the larger African-American community as well. Monica is a vital part of planning this year’s Creating Change. There are many surprises that await the conference goers. If you listed to last weeks’ show she gave you a little pre-view of what will be going on at the conference.

Based on the Creating Change website it is expected to be over 3500 to be in attendance.
