Together We Stand: Transgender Inclusion (NSAC)

June 8 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

A workshop at the National Sexual Assault Conference

Many organizations are committed to serving ALL survivors.  What that looks like and how agencies reach points of inclusion, confidence in serving, and maintaining their dedication to specific sub-populations of survivors may look different from one organization to the next.  This moderated panel discussion will bring together leaders that have been steadfast in their commitment to transgender inclusion.  Topics will include sharing what that commitment looks like, outreach strategies, and the rewards and challenges of working with or for transgender communities/issues.  Panelists will share their transgender-inclusion efforts and successes, in addition to specific steps their organization has taken to become more trans-aware and effective in connecting with trans survivors and trans issues.  Participants will leave with a deeper sense of reflection about what social justice means (and who it includes!), as well as concrete ideas of how to increase their agency’s inclusiveness and welcome to transgender survivors and communities.
