Making the Connection

Building Stronger Relationships Between Sexual Assault Service Providers and Transgender Survivors.

With support from the Office of Victims for Crime (OVC), FORGE is offering a unique opportunity for sexual assault service providers and transgender community members to work together to 1) evaluate what barriers in your community might be keeping transgender survivors from accessing services; 2) cross-train on local transgender and sexual violence resources and issues; 3) select key barriers identified by participants; 4) create an action plan to begin addressing barriers; and 5) assess success and determine what, if any, additional monitoring, support, or work will be done.
