Today’s episode features a conversation with Jayce Carver, founder and Executive Director of Windsor-Essex Trans Support, the first ever transgender drop-in and resource centre in Canada. Since starting the organization in 2018, Jayce has become increasingly lauded and sought out as an advocate for and expert on trans rights and issues, and among many other speaking engagements, she recently addressed the federal Status of Women Committee at the House of Commons. In their moving conversation, Julie and Jayce discuss her personal story and experience as a trans woman, her ground-breaking work with W.E. Trans Support, and the ways in which everyone can become both more knowledgeable and more empathetic of the challenges faced by those who are trans, gender questioning, and/or transitioning. In other news: a new article by Jean-Paul Boyd for Lawyer’s Daily reflects on how family justice was an invisible issue in the recent Alberta election; the Justice for All report by the Task Force on Justice was recently published, and it shares some shocking realizations on the state of access to justice around the world; a citizen advocacy group has received a grant from the Law Foundation of P.E.I. to do research on access to justice for individuals who have an intellectual disability; and finally, the Nova Scotia Legal Aid Commission is taking steps to provide better access to justice for the Black community through the creation of its first African Nova Scotian social worker position.
