This month we are featuring training to showcase research on housing and homelessness among multiply marginalized women (cis and trans) and gender-diverse people (including non-binary and trans men).
When you enroll in this free online training, you will learn about the unique barriers that multiply-marginalized women and gender-diverse people face when accessing emergency shelter, housing and housing support. Explore the unique barriers to emergency shelter, housing and housing support. Learn about design & program features that make supports appropriate, accessible and secure for women and gender-diverse people.
“The pandemic has magnified systemic racism and the longstanding inequalities across our society and exacerbated the threats to the safety for women (cis and trans) and gender-diverse people experiencing homeless and housing precarity. By centering this training on community-based research across six gender-focused drop-ins in Canada, we believe the learnings have the potential to shape programing to be more accessible, inclusive and safe for all who access them!” ~Aoife Mallon, TINH Project Lead, Research Site (Sistering)
