Disability and Transgender Survivors
Transgender and non-binary individuals experience extremely high rates violence, as well as live with higher-than-average rates of physical and mental health conditions.

Attendees will gain new insights about the barriers that transgender survivors living with disabilities face. Providers will learn constructive, practical, and memorable strategies that will enable them to more effectively work with this multiply-marginalized population, with an overt focus on techniques and concepts that empower both providers and transgender survivors.
