Community-Based Organizations

The New York Transgender Advocacy Group (NYTAG) educates community-based organizations on Transgender & Gender Non-Conforming (TGNC) issues, and how to best serve the TGNC community. Our interactive curriculum includes case studies allowing participants to learn through real life examples of how to best serve 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, personal bias, institutional barriers, and how best to develop partnerships. All modules are aimed at helping community-based organizations address and eliminate gaps in their services and support.

Overall Objectives

  • Develop appropriate language to describe members of the TGNC community, their experiences, and their specific needs
  • Recognize how they perpetuate stigma against TGNC individuals, both individually and at the organizational level
  • Apply best practices to overcome individual, community, and institutional biases and offer affirming services that adequately meet the needs of TGNC individuals
  • Develop effective partnerships with members of the TGNC community and TGNC-led organizations to better address gaps in services and support
