Presenting at Youth Empowerment Retreat
On Saturday, January 15th, I presented two workshops at the Common Threads Youth Empowerment Retreat in Stony Point NY. Common Threads offers workshops on current adolescent issues in a safe and fun-filled atmosphere. The retreat aims to empower youth by creating a sense of community and an awareness of how to create positive change in areas such as diversity, health, personal safety, political advocacy, and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. One workshop was for the teens and the second was for the providers. Both focused on transgender health concerns, especially as they apply to transgender youth. [Click Here for More Photos]
