Instructor: The 519 Church St. Community Centre
Individuals who identify as Trans often experience barriers to accessing necessary services due to discrimination or harassment based on their gender identity and gender expression. This practical session will explore the experiences and challenges faced by Trans people and will support you to develop approaches to fostering a Trans inclusive environment. Participants will also learn small and larger steps they can take personally and within their organizations to create more inclusive spaces and services for Trans individuals. The session will be facilitated by The 519 Church Street Community Centre. The centre provides education and training programs that meet the needs of the local and broader LGBTQ communities. The 519 Hear It!
