Celebrating Our Youth: Tips on how to be a parent and ally to our gender expansive and trans children.
Themes of responding to bullying, early detection of self-harm, acknowledging we all have a gender identity, and understanding intersectionality will be addressed.

Note: There will be a confidential support group for TYES from 2-3pm at the same venue. While a formal support group is not available for PFLAG at this time, there will be someone available at the venue for informal one-on-one support.
In addition to that, we will be holding a post-election debriefing beginning at 4:30 pm. We will discuss concerns, emotions and fears related to the results of the election. All are welcome regardless of political affiliation. As a reminder childcare is not available at these events.

MAY THIS PRESENTATION HELP TO BUILD AWARENESS REGARDING WAYS TO PARENT AND SUPPORT OUR YOUTH THAT PROVIDES CONFIDENCE AS WELL AS ACCEPTANCE FOR THE MANY VARIETIES OF BEAUTIFUL HUMANS THAT LIVE IN OUR SOCIETY. WORKING TOWARD ENDING VIOLENCE IN OUR TRANSGENDER COMMUNITIES.
