From children to adults, this can be a conversation on how to show up in support of trans folks and children. Through activities, multimedia, and conversations, we break down gender roles that are assigned in the U.S, talk about what it means to be trans, discuss ways to be more inclusive, and accept what we don’t know or understand. We don’t need to know everything but we do need to challenge the messages we’ve received about gender and have critical analysis. We need to do less harm.
