VAWA non-discrimination provisions: An overview…

March 17, 2015 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am

…of how your organization can make concrete, effective changes to better serve transgender clients

Description: The Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 added a grant condition that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity. Many providers and grantees working with survivors have questions about what these new conditions mean and how it might impact their agency. Many are unsure of where to go or who to ask for additional support in improving and expanding their services to include survivors of all sexual orientations and gender identities. FORGE — one of two national OVW-funded LGBTQ training and technical assistance providers — will share examples of what support is available to your agency; how to make changes to align with the new VAWA non-discrimination conditions; and how to better serve transgender and LGBQ survivors of sexual assault, domestic and dating violence and stalking.
