Community-Based Organization

The New York Transgender Advocacy Group (NYTAG) educate community-based organizations on Transgender & Gender Non-Conforming (TGNC) issues and how to best serve them. Our interactive curriculum includes case studies allowing participants to learn through real life examples of serving the TGNC community. This 4-module leadership and advocacy training is designed to engage community-based organizations in effective partnerships with the TGNC community. Each module confronts our use of language, bias, barriers and the development of partnerships. All modules are aimed at helping community-based organizations address and better gaps in their services and support.

Overall Objectives

  • Apply best practices to overcome individual, community, and institutional biases and offer affirming services that adequately meet the needs of TGNC individuals
