NTVM/TD Bank Action Caravan
Learn more about the great work that is being done on behalf of the Trans and Non-binary community by organizations across the country.
Torch Awards Header-3

Join us as we criss-cross the country highlighting and giving visibility to the work and action that is being done in communities by and for trans and non-binary individuals and allies and organizations.

The Action Caravan will travel to 11 cities leading up to the March starting August 23. In each city, NTVM and our Presenting Sponsor TD Bank will host and broadcast live lunchtime chats with thought leaders in each city and then host an on-the ground event that will be broadcast live via Facebook. These events are meant to inspire you, to give you new ideas and tips, and to connect you with leaders across the country.

Watch the Live Action Caravan!

Are you unable to be present for the Torch Awards Livestream? You can still participate by watching it happen on a live stream on Friday, 4th of November at 8:00 pm EST
