Anti-LGBTQ legislation is rising at an all-time high rate in this country, threatening the safety of LGBTQ survivors, increasing stigma, and eroding legal protections. More than 400 anti-LGBTQ bills filed in 2023, most of them targeting transgender people. These anti-LGBTQ laws will have catastrophic consequences on LGBTQ survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence. This workshop will aim to equip the participants with the knowledge and skills we need to leverage the anti-violence movement and survivor-support field to respond to the wave of anti-LGBTQ attacks.
