The School of Social Work’s Statement on Transphobia:

The UBC School of Social Work stands in solidarity against the prominent and pervasive forms of transphobia, alongside other conditions of oppression such as racism, poverty, sexism, homo/biphobia, ableism, and ageism, that shape and influence the experiences of trans, two-spirit, and gender diverse students, alumni, staff, and faculty members connected with the School and the broader UBC community. The School also expresses its support for measures intended to address transphobia, within the School, across the university, and beyond UBC, including the promotion of safe spaces, and commits itself to ethical and respectful engagement with trans, two-spirit, and gender diverse communities.
