Dismantling Toxic Mythology- Building Our Pantheons of Heroes:
This online class will be offered starting on February 2nd from 6:30-8:30 in the Pacific Standard Time Zone. The course will run for 8 weeks. The course is scheduled to run again in May and September, with the possibility of times that are more suitable to other time zones if appropriate.
It will include resource sharing, skill development and supported personal exploration. The online classroom will be a trans-centered space, where cisgender folks wishing to develop allyship capacity are welcome.
The course will include a weekly presentation of content, small group discussions and a broad selection of resources that students will be able to access through the course library. Learners will be encouraged to group into a learning pod in their own home communities if possible.
Students will have the opportunity to investigate ways that intersectional systems of oppression impact our lives, deconstruct toxic mythologies and connect to community resources for resilience.
This course aims to impact high suicide rates and other measures of social determinants of health amongst trans populations by connecting trans folks and our supporters with tools and each other to more effectively navigate the world and build personal and community resilience. The course places our lives, struggles, activism and resilience within a historical context where we can connect with ancestors and teachers of path.
Base tuition is $100 (subject to change as platform details are confirmed). Scholarships will be available to trans folks with limited financial access. Cisgender ally participants and participants with greater financial access are encouraged to support these scholarships financially.
