Honoring Emma Deboncoeur, Supporting Trans Health Scholarship

Last March, the world lost a powerful activist with the passing of Emma Deboncoeur, a student and active member of BCSM’s Structural Competency Working Group. To honor her memory, the Emma Deboncoeur Trans Health Scholarship will provide financial assistance to students at UCSF and UC Berkeley who share Emma’s passion for transgender health or transgender-related topics.  To acknowledge the one-year anniversary of Emma’s passing, we hope to reach a $10,000 fundraising goal for the scholarship by March 13, 2019. Please join the crowdfunding campaign by giving here.

Scenes from the Migrant Caravan in Tijuana

BCSM affiliates Seth M. Holmes, Fabian Fernandez, and Levi Vonk recently traveled to Tijuana, Mexico. During their time with the caravan, they volunteered at a street clinic, donated a vanload of supplies, and supported a legal aid organization correcting misinformation. They documented their time there in this photo essay.
