Virtual Workshop: Law Enforcement, The Criminal Justice System & The Transgender Community, 9/30/20 7PM

The media is full of stories that paint law enforcement in a negative way which creates a feeling that one should be afraid of law enforcement officers. While this is a topic of great debate amongst politicians and citizens alike the inevitable fallout is the creation of some level of fear for the average person. This fear is magnified when you are the member of a group, like the transgender community, that has historically been misunderstood, marginalized, ridiculed, abused or worse.

This workshop will look at various situations in which members of the transgender community may interact with law enforcement and the criminal justice system. We will explore options for successfully navigating situations that range from traffic stops to felony level criminal investigations. Attendees will receive a quick reference card with the top five tips for interacting with law enforcement. Audience participation and the sharing of personal experiences is encouraged but not required.

Workshops are free for all, but registration is required.
