Writing it Out! (8-20-2020)
August 20, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm CDT
Feelings are running high these days. Many of us are frustrated, angry, sad. Some of us are tapped into feelings of hopelessness and unrest with the state of the world. (Some of us might also be able to take moments where we can experience the beauty of the budding fall.) Where ever you are — whatever you are feeling — join us for a time to express yourself and share with others.

ASL, Captions, and Trans/Queer-led:
Events will have an ASL interpreter and captioning. Please reach out with any access needs.
Support focused groups are trans and queer led.
FORGE and Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin, Inclusion Health Clinic have created a series of events for trans+/non-binary community members, loved ones, and supporters, to come together for support, connection, learning, and empowerment. Participants will have the opportunity to find community, feel less isolated, and learn new skills and information.
Initiated in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many topics focus on medical and mental health issues, coping strategies, access to public benefits, links to resources, where/how to access support, creative expression, and some time to have some fun.
Sit back. Or lean in.
If you miss the live events, many will be recorded! (Recordings available at: https://www.youtube.com/c/FORGEForwardTrans)
