Trans Comprehension 201 with Southern Arizona Gender Alliance
National research suggests that as many as one in three transgender people experience homelessness at some point in their lifetime (US Transgender Survey, 2015). Despite their disproportionately high rates of homelessness, homeless services and supports are often under-prepared to understand and provide safe, gender-affirming services and support for transgender, non-binary, and other gender diverse people.
Join TPCH and Southern Arizona Gender Alliance (SAGA) for Trans Comprehension 201. This is the final training of a two-part series on gender comprehension and gender-affirming responses to homelessness to be provided by TPCH and SAGA this year.
During this 90-minute training, participants will spend time examining internal biases, stories, and statistics, commonly taught and harmful falsities, and the weight they hold in society. Participants will begin developing strategies to more wholly and responsibly support gender diverse people experiencing homelessness and leave with a framework for implementing change within their organization.
This training is excellent for staff and volunteers of all levels working in programs that touch or impact people experiencing homelessness.
