EVENT: NO MORE Challenge 2017

THE STORY:

Who is FORGE?

FORGE is a national transgender anti-violence organization, founded in 1994.  We are a national training and technical assistance provider, supporting victim service professionals to better serve transgender and non-binary survivors.   We are equally committed to working with transgender, non-binary survivors and loved ones in healing from sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking, and other forms of violence.

Trans people experience high rates of victimization.
  • Over 50% of trans and non-binary people have experienced sexual abuse or assault.
  • Over 50% of trans and non-binary individuals have experienced intimate partner violence.
  • Over 77% of youth reported having 1 or more negative experiences in school. (K-12)

These rates are far too high. We say *NO MORE.*

Our commitment

We are deeply committed to providing victim service providers with high quality training on better serving transgender and non-binary survivors.  We are equally committed to supporting trans and non-binary survivors reach a place of greater wholeness in their lives.  We are also deeply committed to helping shift the world to a place where ALL people can live authentically and without violence.

We need to talk about it

We need to talk about sexual assault, intimate partner violence, bullying, other forms of victimization. The more we talk about it, the more survivors can reduce the long-term effects of trauma based on their experiences.

The more we talk about it, the more people will be able to recognize signs of abuse in their own lives and in the lives of others.  It’s vital that we talk to each other – not just in our own bubbles and own communities, but across communities.


NO MORE

We are calling for no more…

No more domestic violence
No more sexual assault
No more dating violence

No more harassment
No more discrimination
No more stereotyping

No more bullying
No more disrespecting difference
No more silence


Help us say no more by participating in the NO More Challenge Campaign and spreading the word.

We are Louder Together!
