    You know you want to support trans individuals and communities, but you're not always 100% sure how to do that well. This is the workshop for you.

    In spite of increasing acceptance of transgender identities, trans community members still face intense stigma, violence and barriers to participation. Many service providers and community leaders have good intentions about trans inclusion and, with a deeper understanding and expanded toolbox, they can build on those intentions to create truly trans-inclusive practices and policies. This workshop is for anyone who is motivated to build their capacity to more effectively support trans people in their professional and community contexts.

    Through a lively combination of presentations, small- and large-group discussions, practical exercises and collaborative problem-solving, participants will:

     - Gain understanding of trans identities and experiences
     - Examine personal, organizational, and community barriers to inclusion
     - Develop strategies to support trans people in everyday interactions and in their professional roles
     - Plan next steps to put their allyship into action, while staying in touch with the needs and priorities of trans communities

    This is a follow-up session to the several Trans/forming Allyship trainings we've offered in Madison over the past year. Registration is open to people who have attended one of those previous trainings, or are registered for the one on March 16 (Register now! https://transallyshiptraining-jruuc.brownpapertickets.com/), or who already have substantial experience with trans community advocacy.

    Trans/forming Allyship brought together several phenomenal cohorts of leaders in our community, from bank managers to body workers, housing coop members to congregational leaders, social workers to preschool teachers. Now we'll gather once again to build on our foundation of allyship skills, and turn our attention to our organizations. Together, we will:
    - assess the policies, structures, and organizational culture that either support or restrict trans inclusion
    - envision long-term possibilities for trans inclusion and gender justice
    - map out concrete steps toward short- and medium-term goals that we can start working toward right now
    - build community, share ideas and resources, and support one another in this work

    Like last time, you can expect a lively combination of presentations, small- and large-group discussions, practical exercises and collaborative problem-solving. We'll introduce some new ideas and tools as well as draw on the wisdom and experience in the group.

    This training is offered with the generous support of the UW Credit Union
