Social Justice and Serving the Transgender Community, Part 1


**This training is provided in two parts. Session 1 is required for attendance of Session 2.**

As the number of transgender people accessing human services increases, so must our ability to serve them. The transgender community is disproportionately impacted by homelessness, poverty, and violence with severe obstacles to resources. This is compounded upon by systematic oppression, pathologization, institutional disenfranchisement, and a lack of education among providers. In order to foster affirming, inclusive services we must obtain an understanding the community’s unique needs and the barriers that prevent them from being met. This training series will educate participants how to better serve the trans community by explaining culturally responsible language, discussing trans experiences, and providing tools to address disenfranchisement. Sessions will also offer the opportunity to practice skills in group conversations, learning activities, and example case studies so they may better empower the trans people we serve. 

The instructor requests that only people who are fully vaccinated attend this live-in-person class.

  • Learn language, theory, and the unique obstacles of the transgender community including intersections with other oppressed social and cultural identities.
