The MSBA's Family Law Section Presents
"Understanding Family Violence in the LGBT Communities"
This highly interactive presentation identifies common language used to describe LGBT communities as well as the impacts of homophobia and transphobia on family violence survivors, deepens the understanding of the unique barriers often faced by LGBT people when accessing mainstream services and systems and will help develop personalized skills to increase access in our own workplaces.
