Anti-Racism from a Black Trans Liberation Perspective
This training is aimed at building an anti-racist praxis specifically by dismantling anti-Blackness societally and interpersonally, and addressing racism through a trans liberation lens.

Decolonization from a Pan-Africanist, Trans Liberatory Perspective
This training looks at the construction of power structures and expands on how a decolonized mindset is a medium for expanding a personal and collective vision for a new world independent of what we know and experience today. The training is an ideal complement to our anti-racism training above.
