About the Event
Join us as we host Strength United for an illuminating virtual workshop on the ABC's of LGBTQIA+ Identities. This workshop will provide a brief introduction to cultural humility and LGBTQIA+ identities, and also focuses on common issues those in the community face. Since Strength United focuses its work on supporting and affirming queer survivors of intimate partner violence, we will be focusing some of the workshop on being sensitive and affirming to LGBTQIA+ survivors of sexual violence.
This is a safe space for all to come and learn, and we welcome all questions at the conclusion of the workshop. We hope to see you there!
