#WeToo: Creating and sustaining movements that empower and include trans and queer survivors of intimate partner violence (UT)

June 1, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

At the Hope and Resilience Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah


The world that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV) live in has changed radically over the past two years. Title IX roll-backs. Bathroom bills. Trump/Pence. Religious exemptions. Office of Civil Rights protection shifts. These seemingly unrelated political issues deeply impact LGBTQ IPV survivors and loved ones. Fortunately, even with substantial setbacks in policy and legislation, advocates, shelter staff, state agency workers, clinicians, law enforcement, and other victim service providers are continuing to support healing, seek justice, and advocate for healing and wholeness for the LGBTQ survivors they work with. This keynote will share 2018 FORGE research on transgender IPV and SA survivors; review the current, changing socio-political-cultural landscape as it relates to LGBTQ survivors; innovative strategies for working with LGBTQ survivors; and preview the resources and projects that are moving us forward. Attendees will leave with concrete, ready-to-use, steps to better support LGBTQ survivors, loved ones, and communities.


Learning objectives:

  1. List 2 recent policy changes that are affecting LGBTQ IPV survivors and loved ones
  2. Identify at least 3 new research findings about LGBTQ IPV survivors and loved ones
  3. Leave with 4 practical steps to take back to agencies and begin implementing immediately that will increase outreach to and/or services to LGBTQ IPV survivors, loved ones, and community(ies)
