Advocating for LGBTQ Youth Affected by Trauma
Participants will:
 Explore the intersections between LGBTQ youth oppression and the types of trauma LGBTQ youth face.
 Gain understanding of common experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) youth beyond the traditional school and education system, specifically LGBTQ youth who experiences in the foster care system, in juvenile detention centers, who experience homelessness, trafficking and are on the streets.  
 Learn about complementary frameworks of anti-violence advocacy that focus on anti-oppression, harm reduction, trauma informed care, positive youth development and transformative justice best-practices to support LGBTQ youth.
 Explore their own understandings of the typical pathologies placed on LGBTQ youth, often as ways to deny or minimize the trauma and abuse LGBTQ youth face.
 Practice case scenarios on ways they can use effective advocacy techniques to support LGBTQ youth.
