Conference on Crimes Against Women

Episode three of the second season of the Podcast on Crimes Against Women welcomes Dr. Paige Baker-Braxton, Director of In Power Services for Howard Brown Health Center. Paige sheds light on the barriers unique to transgender women, the extremely high rates of violence toward transgender women, and what In Power is doing to move the needle in the right direction for a more holistic approach to harm reduction and trauma-informed care.

In this third episode in a series about addressing barriers of survivors of violence, we explore how advocates and organizations can be more inclusive of transgender women in their practices, how we can lessen the stigma and create more acceptance toward the transgender community, and how trans voices can be heard and integrated into solutions.
