Call for Volunteers: Editing & Proofreading the Trans & Gender Diversity Guide

***These events are taking place on territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, sel̓íl̓witulh, and Stó:lō nations.***

As the trans and gender diverse guide to SFU begins to finish up, we are now looking for proofreaders and editors who can help us get other opinions on the current content and presentation of the guide. If you are interested in helping out with editing and proofreading, register here.

Location
Proofreading can be done on one's own, with other folks or with the Trans & Gender Diversity Project Worker. For either of the latter options, accommodations such as ASL or an FM tuner can be provided based on the person's need. Proofreading, if not done on one's own, would most likely be conducted in the Out On Campus lounge.
