Resources Spotlight: Transgender Survivors

While at the National Sexual Assault Conference in Washington D.C. I had the opportunity to attend a really great work session focused on providing services to transgender survivors of sexual violence. The presenter, Michael Munson, is the executive director of Forge. Michael offered a really friendly and very informative session (with no shame or guilt) on how to start better serving trans survivors. It can be really hard to have conversations about under-served populations without worry, guilt, or shame attached to them and Michael did an outstanding job. During the presentation, I found this clip they shared to be very enlightening and maybe you will, too. What was most surprising to me was that Forge is a national technical assistance provider. Forge offers a bunch of publication and resources as well as trainings. If you find that your SART is struggling to start tackling issues related to transgender survivors, get connected with Forge!
