OutFront is working to train and support trans spokespeople in a public education campaign to talk to members of the media, community members, representatives and lead trainings with the purpose of educating the general public about trans people  and their lived experiences. What is distinct about trans experiences, particularly as it relates to public messaging and education is that there is still not enough accurate information accessible to provide a more complete picture of trans people and their diversity of experiences.  According to a recent PEW poll, only 8% of Americans say they personally know someone who is trans. OutFront will work to raise awareness and public support for trans people and issues that impact their lives.
