A workshop presented at the University of Connecticut, in conjunction with the Rainbow Center.
The existence of trans and non-binary survivors of sexual assault, intimate partner violence, and stalking is not new. Cultural changes over the past several years have added layers of complication, challenge, as well as renewed commitment to shifting the gender-presumptive paradigms, reducing barriers to accessing care and services, and enhancing circles support and embodied resilience. Content will focus on:
- Trans-specific statistics on victimization and harm
- Trans-specific ACES
- The implications of the triple pandemic
- Barriers to accessing services
- Practical steps anyone can take to improve the lives of trans and non-binary survivors
