Rabbi Daniel Bogard who serves Central Reform Congregation in St. Louis, MO will speak about his experience raising a trans child and feeling like your State government is at war with your family, the camp that he started for trans youth, and what we can do to safeguard trans rights. He will also share Jewish texts that recognize that as long as there have been human beings, there have been people who are trans because being trans is just another way of being human.

Rabbi Daniel Bogard is a rabbi, an educator, and an activist in Missouri working to protect trans kids and other vulnerable minorities from the bullies who run his State government. He serves as a rabbi at Central Reform Congregation in St. Louis, MO along with his wife Rabbi Karen Bogard.
