This webinar looks at the ingredients needed for improving and transforming the relationship between trans communities and police departments, and helps map a path to getting there. Using examples from cities that have made progress in this area, viewers will have the chance to better understand their local situation, and what steps they might need to take to advance their work around policing. We also take a brief look at the broader framework of laws that may help guide viewers’ efforts. Our presenter is Jason Terry, a peace and justice trainer and advocate who has been an anti-violence organizer with the DC Trans Coalition for five years, and is a co-founder of the DC Anti-Violence Collaborative. Jason is the lead liaison for DC LGBT organizations working with DC’s Metropolitan Police Department (MPD), and is a member of MPD’s LGBT Violence Prevention and Response Team and the U.S. Attorney for DC’s Hate Crimes Task Force.
