Transgender and non-binary people experience extremely high rates of sexual violence, but remain underserved in rape crisis centers. To help participants better meet the needs of the trans community, this workshop covers 101 content, like the difference between sex and gender, the fact that these categories are not binaries, and the importance of pronouns. We’ll also build on this knowledge and a discussion of disparities to ask how we can shift our practices (as organizations and individuals) to move beyond the binary of male and female. We’ll arrive at concrete strategies to support trans survivors in healing. Please come to this workshop prepared to participate in discussion, reflection, and breakout groups.
