Professionals for Trans Lives: Supporting Your Trans Clients, July 7 at 12 noon

Contributed by Luca Maurer on 07/02/20 

View printable version

Transgender people experience systemic barriers in every facet of life just because of who they are. Equitable education, employment, housing, healthcare, mental health support, substance treatment and more are all harder to come by for trans folks -- especially low-income trans people of color -- due to systemic transphobia, sexism, racism, ableism, and heterosexism.

In this 1-hour live webinar, we invite professionals from every sphere -- especially medical and mental health providers, attorneys and legal professionals, social workers, case managers, and criminal justice professionals -- to learn how to most respectfully and effectively serve transgender, non-binary, and gender-expansive people. Queer trans civil rights attorney Milo Primeaux, Esq. (he/they) will offer foundational best practices for serving trans people, generally, as well as tips for "issue spotting" various challenges your trans clients or patients might be facing so you can connect them to resources they need.
