I am on the National Press Club email list, and I got this little calendar entry in my inbox today. I thought I would share it with everyone else, in case anyone wanted to go.
Training is an integral part of any journalist’s regimen, and this one stuck out at me because there are a lot of issues, both political and social, involving the transgendered community. If you feel like you need a refresher, go for it.
