Introduction to Legal Allyship for Transgender and Gender Diverse Communities

Even with progressive anti-discrimination policies in place, transgender people continue to encounter regular barriers when trying to amend their identity documents, accessing housing, and receiving adequate healthcare. In the constant changing climate of election season, protections and policies are continually being updated and challenged, making it even harder for the transgender community to get accurate representation and assistance. Please join Ingersoll staff as we provide an introduction to trans cultural humility concepts, an overview of common legal barriers encountered by our communities, and how attorneys can better represent and support gender diverse clients and co-workers. There will be a Q&A session to conclude the presentation.

This training is open to those in the legal profession who are interested in learning how they can better serve their trans and gender diverse clients.
