Building a Parent Toolbox: How, When, and Where to Advocate

This workshop gives parents of transgender and gender non-confirming children the advocacy tools needed to address problems in a variety of challenging areas: healthcare, educational, legal, insurance, and social. Based on the presenter’s personal experiences and on the experiences of others, this workshop lays out solutions for climbing over our families’ biggest obstacles. We will define the obstacles, educate about rights and responsibilities, and guide parents about how to be the best advocate for your child and for yourself.
