Did you know that transgender folks are twice as likely to experience homelessness as the general population? They are also twice as likely to experience unemployment and three times as likely for transgender people of color. Transgender people experience discrimination and even physical violence on a consistent basis. Transgender Cultural Fluency will be an introduction to transgender people, our lives and Issues.

Stacy Fatemi, of the Transgender Resource Center of New Mexico, provides this basic training including a chance to engage in dialogue and have your questions answered directly. Our objective is to personalize transgender folks and to increase visibility and awareness while decreasing the discrimination, fear, hostility and violence that is routinely directed toward members of our population.
