Community Training: Supporting Trans Affirming Culture

August 9, 2018 at 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for a mixer & training to support trans affirming culture!

In this hands-on training, Rose Stack from Trans Affirming Spaces will guide us on how we can make our community spaces more inclusive.
You’ll leave the training equipped with the knowledge to:

• Identify and define terms and concepts relevant to the transgender experience

• Politely ask for a person’s name and pronoun

• Avoid offending or further upsetting people who are transgender

• Understand how to speak to and treat a transgender person in an affirming way

This event is free and open to the public. Whether you’re a business owner, community organizer, bike rider, or are simply passionate about building inclusive communities we hope you’ll join us (and bring a friend!).

If you would like to financially support this event and more like it, we will accept cash at the event and Paypal donations to venividivelopdx@gmail.com.
