Today SRLP’s Elana Redfield and Alisha Williams provided a successful training to NYC Human Resources Administration directors! HRA staff left feeling inspired to continue these trainings with their coworkers and invite SRLP back for a 2.0 training next spring.
This trans 101 training covered general cultural competency issues; pervasive cultural messages that reinforce gender norms and sensationalize trans people; an introduction to transphobia, including interpersonal and structural barriers to trans people’s well-being and survival; and interventions that people can take from workplaces to service provision to our everyday lives. We’re glad to have the opportunity to collaborate with HRA employees to improve trans people’s experiences and outcomes while navigating public benefits and programs.
