Journalist-in-Residence Imara Jones continues her monthly residency in The Greene Space with discussions around next week’s historic election. She’ll be joined by WNYC News reporter Matt Katz to talk about recent polling, states to watch and what voters can expect to see on election night and beyond.

She’ll also talk to Andy Marra, Executive Director of the Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund (TLDEF) about the impact Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s appointment to the Supreme Court could have on trans people’s rights and issues. Plus, a tribute to trans journalist Monica Roberts who passed away earlier this month.

ASL interpretation will be available during the show.

The trans community, allies and those who wish to learn more are all welcome to join us to share experiences, insights, questions and celebrations by tweeting @TheGreeneSpace and using the hashtags #translash #livesatstake.

Lives at Stake is a series of frank conversations by and for trans people about the issues affecting their communities, hosted by Emmy and Peabody Award winner Imara Jones, The Greene Space’s first-ever Journalist-in-Residence. Building off Jones’ storytelling project TransLash, these online gatherings will also highlight the resilience, creativity and artistry that are critical ingredients to trans life, showcasing trans creatives performing their craft.
