Trans Culture Training

Upcoming Web Training

Please join NM CASA and the Transgender Resource Center of NM for the Trans 201 training on June 26, 2024. If you attended the Trans Cultural Fluency training and want to deepen your knowledge, or if you have a basic understanding and wish to expand it further, we encourage you to attend.

Trans 201 will briefly review topics covered during the Trans Cultural Fluency training, including assigned sex, gender, and sexual orientation. Following this review, the training will delve deeper into subjects such as nonbinary identities, intersectionality, effective allyship, and the experiences of individuals who detransition, exploring what this means and the reasons behind their choices.

Become an advocate. Get involved.

On average, a child in foster care will move into multiple homes and attend numerous schools. All this chaos and inconsistency has long-term effects. A caring, consistent adult who listens, checks in, and puts the child’s best interests before all others can make all the difference.

Speak up for a child who’s been abused or neglected.

Court-appointed special advocate (CASA) volunteers make a life-changing difference for children who have experienced abuse or neglect. Each volunteer is appointed by a judge to advocate for a child’s best interest in court. Our volunteers help judges develop a fuller picture of each child’s life. Their advocacy enables judges to make the most well-informed decision for each child.
