Domestic violence, sexual assault, and dual coalitions are uniquely positioned to help member organizations provide effective services to transgender survivors, despite increase in anti-transgender rhetoric and discrimination in many places throughout the United States. This webinar, intended for staff, leadership, and board members of domestic violence, sexual assault, and dual coalitions, provides an overview of the rise of anti-transgender legislation and rhetoric in the last several years.

Participants will learn about the types of legislation, executive orders, and other actions affecting transgender survivors; how these actions affect LGBTQIA2S+ communities and the experiences of LGBTQIA2S+ survivors; and how they affect the work of both direct service providers and coalitions. Additionally, presenters discuss strategies for coalitions to support member organizations so that together they can effectively navigate serving transgender survivors in an increasingly hostile climate.
