A Workshop for professionals in education, social and community agencies

Queer, used by academics and reclaimed by the millennial generation, no longer has the derogatory implication that it once had.  The content in this workshop defines terms for sexual and gender identity as used in the lesbian, gay, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) community.  Attendees will come away with a basic understanding of being an ally, creating safe zones, concepts relative to gender vs. sex vs. sexuality, societal expectations for gender roles, heteronormative and gender conforming privilege, their phobias, and a special segment on bullying. 

Workshop Presenters:

Matt Huckaby—Executive Director of The Center for Violence-free Relationships in Placerville has experience in promoting education, advocating and providing services in El Dorado County to build healthy relationships in families and communities.  He is especially versed in addressing bullying.

Shara Murphy—Executive Director of the Center is the first ally to lead the efforts of the Center in its core mission.

Wendy Rae Hill—a social worker, Wendy is currently a staff member for Assembly Member Tom Ammiano of San Francisco and assisted in the development of numerous pieces of legislation protecting the rights of gay, lesbian and transgender youth in California.

Jason Bense—a Lutheran minister, Jason is a volunteer at the Center.
