I'm giving a workshop at the Connecticut chapter of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) conference today...
Supporting Transgender Rights at Work, School, and in the Community
1.5 CECs/ .1 CEUs
This workshop will cover the discrimination that the transgender community feels every day and how the important legislation passed this spring by the CT Legislature will help the trans-community in areas such as employment, credit, housing, and public accommodations to alleviate the oppression they face. Students and school employees face particular challenges and the role of the Connecticut State Department of Education will be outlined with attention given to what rights and best practices should be in place in school settings. Connecticut is one of only 15 states to have these protections. Join us to learn more about this significant piece of social justice legislation.
