Webinar provided by VERA Institute of Justice.

Description:

Transgender and gender non-conforming individuals experience extremely high rates of violence, as well as live with higher-than-average rates of physical and mental health conditions. This webinar will explore the barriers and experiences of transgender survivors with disabilities, through information and statistics about who they are and the types of violence they experience. Participants will also learn about constructive and practical strategies for working with this multiply-marginalized population. The information in this webinar will be a step up from introductory courses about trans issues. If you would like to review introductory materials about trans individuals and transgender survivors please visit FORGE’s website at http://forge-forward.org.
