Anti-trans Cultures of Hate: Recognizing and responding to disinformation

Anti-trans Cultures of Hate: Recognizing and responding to disinformation

The “culture wars” can be an elusive concept. We might hear it talked about in the news or on social media, but what does it mean, and how does it relate to trans people? In this training, content will explore the “who/what/when/where/why” of anti-trans culture wars, as well as delve more deeply into understanding the tactics being used to perpetuate harm. A deeper discussion of the consequences and impacts will lead participants to gain a better understanding of media literacy and assessment strategies to determine if information is true or not. Attendees will leave with action steps on how to better support trans individuals, as well as how they can help shape and respond to anti-trans hate in the broader society.

Date: August 20th, 2024
Time: 1 – 2:30 PM CST
