What's Hot at TYSN
ITASCA: the Institute for Trans Accessible Services and Cultural Awareness
Transphobia is creating barriers to access within your agency Ė and not just for your trans clients. What can you do as a committed social worker, advocate, case manger, etc. to break these barriers down? What can we do together as a community of youth and adult allies to promote justice for trans youth? Itasca is the headwaters of the all-powerful Mississippi River. Let ITASCA be the headwaters of empowerment and resources for trans youth you work with. On May 15th, TYSN will unviel this new program and our improved curriculum.
