#CountMeIn Call to Action Week 13: Recognize that not all women have a uterus, and not everyone with a uterus is a woman.

Our call to action this week calls on all of us to deepen our understanding beyond the gender binary. In doing so we become better equipped to respect the varied identities and experiences of trans and gender nonconforming members of our community, who have always been working in movements of gender and racial equity. And we commit ourselves to challenge the ways we perpetuate oppression among members of our community.

Recognize that not all women have a uterus, and not everyone with a uterus is a woman.

Trans and gender nonconforming Oregonians are among the most marginalized, misunderstood, and underserved people in our communities. Educate yourself about trans and gender nonconforming folks. Demonstrate respect and inclusivity in all contexts.
