The group is jointly facilitated by Jennifer Fazio, LMSW, however the group’s goal is for the participants developing a sense of group ownership. Participants are encouraged to give input, lead discussions, and provide discussion topics. It is our hope that participants will feel that it is their group, so they can make it what they want.
Some of the past discussion topics have include:
Living outside of the gender binary
Medical and emotional health
There is no cost for this group, but donations are encouraged, to help supplement program expenses. A $5 donation is suggested, but no one is turned away.
Our group is open to anyone who identifies on the transgender spectrum and to friends, family members, partners, and allies. We meet at 7:30PM on the second Tuesday of each month at The Freedman Center. Contact Jennifer Fazio, LMSW at jfazio@FreedmanCenter.com for more information about this vibrant group.
