FORGE provides Milwaukee-based social support, education and resources for trans individuals and loved ones. Meetings provide a friendly, facilitated setting for people to network, become more informed, to gather resources, and share their personal experiences and stories.
Each meeting focuses on one pre-determined topic. Sometimes there will be a panel presentation or a guest speaker, sometimes we’ll do small group exercises or watch trans-focused films, and sometimes we, as a group, will generate our own questions and answers. Each meeting begins with brief introductions and an ice-breaker question. We’ll end each meeting with a closing question. Everyone will have an opportunity to speak, listen, and be heard.
