Nourish is offering training for women, which includes trans women, Two-Spirit, and non-binary identities, who have experienced poverty, racialization, criminalization, disability, or substance use. Participants will learn how to share their stories with the community and have the opportunity to connect with others.

This training will:

  • Create a space where people can share freely and safely
  • Explain what stories are and why they are important
  • Explore how stigma is learned from stories, and how stories can challenge stigma
  • Develop participants’ skill and confidence in sharing stories
  • Help shape participants’ stories and find the best place to start when telling it

Participants will receive an honorarium.
