All Genders Welcome Here! Community Education Series says
The Center on Domestic Violence presents "All Genders Welcome Here: Increasing transgender-specific knowledge and skills for victim service providers", presented by Michael Munson, the co-founder and Executive Director of FORGE, an organization focused on improving the lives of transgender individuals by building stronger connections, providing resources, and empowering growth through knowledge.

This fast-paced full day training will stimulate attendees to expand their conceptual framework(s) about transgender survivors of sexual and intimate partner violence. Trans-specific research will highlight prevalence data, barriers to accessing services, as well as some of the unique challenges transgender survivors face. Data will also guide discussion on how providers and systems can lower barriers and integrate effective strategies to better serve transgender survivors and loved ones. A review of trans-inclusive federal legislation and advancements will provide information on both federal mandates to provide services, and, more importantly, connect the dots for attendess on how these federal advancements can improve the safety and health of the transgender survivors they work with.
