Working Effectively with API Trans Folks

Led by the author of Born on the Edge of Race and Gender: A Voice for Cultural Competency, this workshop will engage participants in meaningful dialogue about issues related to Asian and Pacific Islander (API) trans and gender-expansive experience. Topics include API trans identity, culture, mental health, family (those created as well as families of origin), the expectations of larger society, and other culturally relevant issues. Participants will leave better equipped to provide equal access for this population in service provisions, educational settings, and throughout society.
