Philosophies of Trans Inclusion

This webinar will provide an opportunity for attendees and knowledgeable panelists to explore philosophies of transgender inclusion in anti-violence work. We will focus not on the HOW, but the WHY — not how we make services more accessible to trans survivors, but how and why our movements can and should commit to transgender justice and ending/addressing violence against trans people. Opportunities abound for all organizations, not only culturally specific programs, to strengthen their philosophical and practical commitment to inclusive and accessible work. Understanding the why can help folks already committed to these ideals to engage others within their organizations and communities, and advocate for practical change.
