Trans and non-binary people experience high rates of violence and victimization (including bullying, sexual assault, domestic violence, stalking, and hate-motivated bias).

We all lean on loved ones, friends, colleagues, and professionals, especially during difficult times.  Knowing how to best support trans and non-binary loved ones and friends after a crime can help reduce the long-term effects of trauma and strengthen your relationship.   Here are some things you can do:

  • Listen
  • Reassure
  • Empower
  • Recruit your own support
  • Gently help the survivor stay connected
  • Be patient
