Yesterday was exciting for two reasons:
- Ambit was invited to facilitate a training with the Independent Living Housing Society, an organization that provides home-centred support for people living with disAbilities; and
- Alexa Robin has joined the Ambit team, and it was our first day training together!
Our conversations with ILHS were very rich, and while some of the content about trans-ness and gender diversity was new to the participants, many parallels and overlaps were identified between disability justice and trans justice. The ILHS leadership team was very much able to take their expertise from their field, and apply many of the same principles to creating accessible and affirming spaces for trans and gender diverse clients and staff (some of whom also live with disAbilities).
