Providing Equal Access for Trans and Gender-Expansive Populations
Conducted by the author of Born on the Edge of Race and Gender: A Voice for Cultural Competency, this workshop will explore the breadth of identities associated with trans and gender-nonconforming communities, including the intersecting experiences of race, culture, socioeconomic circumstances, and disability. Participants will learn to utilize culturally competent language and behavior for addressing and working with this population, and increase their knowledge of health care access, educational access, and legal issues that impact trans communities. We will identify trans-affirming service delivery systems for educational and community health settings. Interactive, solutions-oriented, and engaging, this workshop will provide opportunities for learning and problem solving at all knowledge levels. Everyone welcome.
