Thank you for sharing your research and presenting at NEPA!
Really interesting poster! How can we address police violence towards people who are transgender?
Good topic, interested to see this research continue…and to Ashleigh’s point, very interested in what we can do to address the history of police brutality towards the transgender community.
Thank you for presenting on this! Based on your research, have you found any 911 alternatives that address the need for trans-affirming/safe interventions for crises involving transgender individuals?
This is a great study. I’m happy you centralized the study on the transgender community, but studied the public’s perceptions. I think all too often researchers tend to study either the “resilience” of trans people or anything regarding HIV/AIDS. I think those approaches can either romanticize the struggles trans people face or further stigmatize their health issues. I think it’s so important to start exploring the public’s views on this topic (i.e., teacher’s understandings of trans youth, physicians’ awareness, and education on trans people, police officer’s views). I think this is a great project, it’s a solid foundation for more research on this topic.
