Join award-winning transgender advocate for a celebration of her fifth year of an exciting and barrier-breaking journey to becoming a better version of herself. Darcy Jeda Corbitt-Hall shares her experiences of transitioning in a small, conservative southern town, where she discovered that loving yourself gives ordinary people the strength to do extraordinary things. Darcy also will discuss how to make communities more open and accepting of transgender people.
Darcy will speak twice on Wednesday, April 27, at 12 p.m. and 7 p.m. Both times are open to the public, and the event will be in the Basin Electric Auditorium at the BSC Energy Center of Excellence.
Please share both events to people and groups you know who are interested in creating safer communities for all people.
After five years, Darcy has shared her story with thousands of people across the United States, spoken on over 100 panels, and delivered workshops and guests lectures to classes at multiple universities. To learn more about Darcy, visit her website, http://

Creating Safe Spaces is a resource and training project developed by Dakota OutRight. Our goal is to equip educators, counselors, and all kinds of youth-serving professionals to learn more about supporting LGBTQIA youth and creating safe spaces within their organization. The toolkits come with an array of resources so that you can make a circle of impact, no matter how small. And there are enough resources per toolkit to share with multiple professionals from one organization.
The primary component is our Creating Safe Spaces resource toolkit, which is available FREE of charge. We ask that organizations and professionals who use the toolkit attend a face-to-face training, which will be offered quarterly. The training will take you through the resource guide, but will also look deeper at ways schools can become more welcoming to diverse families, as well as take participants through in-depth, interactive skills building and role play exercises.
Good news! Our first training is scheduled for Saturday, May 21 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the AFL-CIO Labor Union, 1323 E. Front Ave. #1, Bismarck. Save the date—we will open the official registration soon. CEUs for social work and nursing are pending, and we fully expect the training to satisfy educators’ requirements.
If you would like to receive a toolkit, please register below. You will also receive updates on our training opportunities and any other new resources affiliated with this project. Toolkits available May 2016!
