Community Forum for Parents and Caregivers of Trans*/Gender Non-Conforming Youth & Adolescents

(I am not affiliated with this training but am excited to make you all aware of it! I met Erin at another workshop/networking event and she told me about her work. I asked her to let me know when she next offers this forum and she was gracious enough to do so. Please contact Erin — her email is below — if you are interested in learning more about the panel or about her work with transgender youth. Erin also offers a free support group for transgender kids 5 to 12 and you can contact her about that, too.)
