Training and TA overview


FORGE provides both ready-made and design-to-fit trainings on a range of topics related to transgender and LGBT victims of crime, with particular emphasis on victims of:

  • Sexual violence
  • Intimate partner violence
  • Dating violence
  • Stalking
  • Hate crimes

See a list of upcoming FORGE-hosted webinars and conferences where FORGE staff will be presenting workshops.


Some agencies and individual professionals find that they need specific assistance that is not addressed within the context of most webinars or workshops (or they can’t wait until the next conference for an answer). FORGE staff can work with you on short or long term projects/goals and help you find solutions to sometimes complex problems. Contact us for more details of how we can be of assistance to you.

Technical Assistance

In addition to formal trainings (at your location or ours) or larger scale consulting, FORGE provides ongoing technical assistance by phone (414.559.2123) and email AskFORGE [at] forge-forward [dot] org.


You will find FORGE staff at many transgender conferences around the country, at LGBT and “mainstream” aging conferences, at sexual assault / domestic violence conferences, or at special one-time events. Consult our national event calendar to see which conference we’ll be presenting at next. (If you’ve got a request for proposals you’d like us to see or would like to discuss our availability to present at your conference, send the request to AskFORGE [at] FORGE-forward [dot] org or call us at 414-559-2123.)
