With LGBTQ protections revoked under the current administration, the LGBTQ community has been left susceptible to different forms of violence and exclusion. The community is in need of advocates now more than ever. Funders are at a unique position to ameliorate some of the hardships that have been brought against an already vulnerable population.
This training will provide funders with introductory information about LGBTQ terminology and identities, as well as knowledge for recognizing stereotypes, privileges, and intersectional identities. We hope with the knowledge gained at this workshop that funders will not only be able to recognize implicit biases but also better understand the communities they serve.
