Trans experiences of violence and harm: What you can do to shift the paradigm in your own community

April 7, 2021

Marginalized communities often experience elevated levels of harm, health disparities, and barriers to accessing the care, services, and love they deserve. Trans and non-binary people face these challenges, AND, also embody incredible resilience and strength. Community members can positively improve the realities of trans people through simple and direct action.

FORGE staff share about:

  • National and Wisconsin trans-specific data on violence, barriers, disparities, resilience
  • National and Wisconsin-specific pro- and anti-legislative initiatives and current hot topics
  • Practical things you can do to improve the lives of trans and non-binary people Includes Wisconsin-specific data.
