Workshop Spotlight: Queering the Classroom: Centering TGNCNB Youth| 10-11:15 PM

Through the Equity X Design Framework, we are going to take a critical look at the idea of belonging that builds a brave space for all children, but centering TGNCNB Youth. We will discuss what it means to design at the margins, what a transformative classroom looks like, what transformative environments look like, and co-create & co-design with youth.

Workshop Spotlight: Employment and Housing Rights for Trans and Non-Binary Communities: Join us for a conversation on legal protections in housing and employment for trans and non-binary communities in Westchester County. Trans and non-binary people face high rates of discrimination and harassment at home and work, whether by landlords, superintendents, employers, neighbors, co-workers, or others. In this workshop, we will hold space as a community to discuss our experiences and concerns related to discrimination and hate in housing and employment, learn important information about our protections under local law, and have the option to participate in an art-based empowerment activity.

WORKSHOP SPOTLIGHT: Community Workshop: Foundational Principles in the Development of Intimate Relationships for TGNCNB folks | 10-11:15 AM for Ages 18+

Forming intimate relationships can be both exciting and scary at the same time. Often, we don't know where to start or how to approach others about sex and intimacy. Join Gina Pellicci (she/her) and Evelyn Parker (they/she) from Inner Lakes Therapy as they discuss important principles in developing intimate relationships for the TGNCNB community. This workshop includes describing the principles and gives tips on how to apply them. Participants will have time to share their thoughts on each principle with the group. Due to the nature of this workshop, it will be intended for folks who are 18 and older.

Come join us for The Hudson Valley TransForum, the largest regional conference providing resources for the Transgender, Gender Non-Conforming, and Non-Binary community, service providers, and allies!
