About the Transgender Cultural Fluency Training
Transgender people today are more visible and represented throughout our communities than ever. As such, organizations and individuals are finding the need to increase their knowledge and understanding of issues that affect their transgender colleagues, employees, friends, and family members.
Despite gains in visibility and acceptance, transgender people continue to face enormous challenges in everyday life—from poverty, unemployment, lack of access to health care and secure housing, to horrific violence and discrimination.
Our Transgender Cultural Fluency Training lays the foundation for participants to gain a better understanding of what it means to be transgender, clarify common misconceptions about transgender people, become familiar with the challenges transgender communities face, and learn ways to be a strong and engaged advocate for transgender people.
About our trainer:
Stacy Fatemi (they/them) is the Education & Outreach Program Manager for the Transgender Resource Center of New Mexico. After coming out as trans at the age of 17, they began casually educating others to address a gap in gender knowledge that affected their everyday life. Now, at age 25, they do trans cultural fluency trainings and workshops for organizations all around the country, with an added focus on nonbinary people and the issues they face. Before becoming part of the Center, Stacy worked with the Health Equity Alliance for LGBTQ+ New Mexicans as a presenter, writer, and editor for the New Mexico GSA Digital Curriculum, made for use in middle and high schools. When not at work, Stacy can be found making music with their longtime friend, the 6-string bass guitar.
