Embracing and Affirming Our Grandchildren’s Many Identities
Hosted By: The Union for Reform Judaism (URJ)
Children are growing up in a world that is new to many of us. Terms like “non-dominant identities, REDI (racial equity, diversity and inclusion), transgender and nonbinary” may feel unfamiliar and even uncomfortable. These sessions will provide you with foundational knowledge, shared language, and inclusive practices so that we can better demonstrate our unconditional love and support for the important young people in our lives. Join us for a two-part series by the Union for Reform Judaism, Jewish Grandparents Network, and Keshet to support you in providing affirming spaces for gender-expansive, non-binary, and transgender young people.
SESSION 2: Monday, April 4, 4-5 PM ET
L’Dor Va’Dor: Affirming and Loving Your Transgender, Non-Binary, and Gender Expansive Grandchildren
Are you a grandparent or another cherished elder of a child or young person who is expressing their gender in expansive ways? Do you want to learn more about how to celebrate them and show that you love them for who they are? Issues they’re grappling with, the words and terms and pronouns they’re using, and the lives they’re living are new to so many of us. Join us for a frank and informative “gender 101” session that’s geared towards you!
