Join us for an exciting 3-days of learning, connecting and coordinating at the national Trans Justice Strategy Retreat 2024.


The Trans Justice Project brings to you the first national Trans Justice Retreat. An event for grassroots advocates, campaigners, leaders, and allies working towards trans justice in Australia.

Together we will share insights and inspire transformative actions across three days of programming and strengthen connections and collaborations through a range of workshops, training sessions and activities.

Attendees will leave this retreat with the skills to strengthen their contributions, feeling inspired and connected, and with a clear vision for how we continue the fight for trans justice as a community.

Why is this important now?

Trans lives are under attack from a powerful anti–trans lobby working to erode our rights, our safety, and our access to health care. These campaigns have already been hugely successful in the US and the UK, and now they are getting started in Australia. 

By coming together to share strategy, align on our demands, and build relationships, we can help our community to fight back.

Who is this event for?

  • People who are leading work, organisations, or teams in the trans justice space
  • Experts and advocates hoping to become more connected to the movement and refine their strategic advocacy
  • Organisations looking for ways to work in solidarity with the trans community
  • Philanthropic bodies looking to inform strategy and resourcing 

The agenda will feature

  • A range of speakers and panels
  • Caucuses for specific communities
  • Open spaces for people to lead important discussions
  • Skills-based workshops on campaign strategy, messaging, and tactics
  • Time for relaxation and relationship building
  • Sharing of key insights, analysis, and strategy
  • Social activities and entertainment
