Day 1 will cover core concepts about who transgender and non-binary people are, prevalence rates and key data about victimization, federal protections and non-discrimination laws. Building on this, day 2 will be geared more towards advocates, therapists, other staff working at sexual assault or domestic violence-focused agencies.  Participants will gain trans-specific knowledge and skills about safety planning/harm reduction.
