Happy Thanksgiving weekend from the team at the DC Center.
The Center will be closed in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. All programs are cancelled, except our yearly thanksgiving dinner celebration.
Normal operating hours and programming will resume on Monday, November 30, 2020.
Because the DC Center is closed to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus, support groups are meeting remotely via Zoom. We would love for you to join us. Please email email@example.com to receive the Zoom link to join the meeting.
The Trans Support Group is intended to provide emotionally and physically safe space for trans* people and those who may be questioning their gender identity/expression to join together in community and learn from one another. We welcome all who identify under the trans* umbrella or are unsure, and seek to continually reinforce our principles of respect, acceptance and protection through ongoing input from our attendees.
We wish to stress the importance of a safe space where collectively, folks that identify along the trans spectrum or questioning may share stories and experiences. We appreciate the ongoing support of allies, but ask that due to the vulnerable and sensitive nature of Trans support group, and out of respect for its attendees, allies may reach out to more appropriate channels better suited toward ally support.
“Our Trans support group is a strong vibrant community, and we want to make sure everyone is comfortable before they join us for the first time.
In order to maintain the safe space we’ve created for the group, please allow us time to get to know you by reaching out at least 48 hours before a meeting.
Group Facilitators would like the chance to briefly talk to you before your first meeting to orient you to the space and group norms.
This time will also serve to respond to your questions about the group and share relevant resources.”
“Nuestrx grupo de apoyo Trans es una comunidad fuerte y vibrante, y queremxs asegurarnxs de que todos se sientan cómodxs antes de unirse a nosotrxs por primera vez.
Para mantener el espacio seguro que hemxs creado para el grupo, permítanxs tiempo para conocerlx comunicándonxs al menos 48 horas antes de la próxima reunión.
Lxs facilitadores de grupo desean tener la oportunidad de hablar brevemente con usted antes de su primera reunión para orientarlo sobre el espacio y las reglas del grupo.
Éste tiempo también es para responder a sus preguntas sobre el grupo y compartir recursos.”
We have two Trans Discussion Group meetings each month on the second Tuesday and fourth Friday of the month starting at 7 pm.
See you there!
