Event description
How to be both welcoming and effective in supporting trans people

About this Event

Many factors can contribute to or facilitate oppression and violence of Trans people. In many instances, systemic discrimination at the intersection of gender identity and race lead to significant barriers to employment and housing. This pushes many transgender people into underground economies to survive, including sex work and into circumstances where they may be more likely to face violence.

There are a number of actions we can take to address the violence, including enhancing law enforcement response and training of community service partners.

Bio Gavrel Feldman (They/Them)

Gavrel is one of the most well-known faces around Simcoe County and Muskoka - their limitless kindness and ability to call people in with care promotes a culture of community that is often disrupted by harsher means. Also involved in the creation, development and implementation of Trans Liberation Now and several other key projects, Gavrel centres antiracism and anticolonialism work in all they do. Being a key member with notable local organizations, they have worked hard to develop resources and capacity within queer, trans and two-spirit communities

"Gavrel Feldman is amazing. I worked with them on a project and you could not be luckier than to have them do this training for you"
