Trans/forming Allyship: Awareness to Action for Trans Inclusion will take place Saturday, March 16, 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
Want to learn more about how to support transgender community members? Trans/forming Allyship is a unique opportunity to dive deep, zoom wide, and practice concrete ways to make a difference right now – while connecting with like-minded people who are working on the same issues.
In spite of increasing acceptance of transgender identities, trans community members still face intense stigma, violence and barriers to participation.
Many service providers and community leaders have good intentions about trans inclusion and, with a deeper understanding and expanded toolbox, they can build on those intentions to create truly trans-inclusive practices and policies. This workshop is for anyone who is motivated to build their capacity to more effectively support trans people in their professional and community contexts.
For those who want to take the work even further, a Trans/forming Allyship Part 2 is scheduled for March 29 (no Facebook event for that one, register at https://transformingorgs.bpt.me). This first training is a prerequisite, so sign up now for both.
This training is offered with the generous support of the James Reeb Unitarian Universalist Congregation and the Madison Community Cooperative.
