The Office of Victim Assistance, in partnership with the GLBTQ Resource Center and MESA (Moving to End Sexual Assault), is one of four recipients selected in the country to receive training by FORGE staff. FORGE is a progressive organization whose mission is to support, educate, and advocate for the rights and lives of transgender individuals and SOFFA’s (significant others, friends, family and allies). The goal of receiving technical assistance is; to develop sexual assault provider/transgender community coalitions on campus and within the Boulder/Denver community, and to identify and address barriers keeping transgender sexual assault survivors from accessing services. Our work in OVA is to continue exploring ways of being allies and advocates, and to strive towards providing accessible and meaningful services to transgender survivors of sexual assault.
