One of the most fun and meaningful experiences the TEP Foundation had in 2014 was providing LGBT diversity training for about 80 leaders of the Shelby County Sheriff's Office. The trainers were a mixture of transgender, gay, and straight TEP leaders. In some cases, it was the first time members of the staff received exposure to transgender issues and concerns.
LGBT diversity training makes it easier for organizations and local governments to serve our community and promote our safety, dignity, and inclusion. When you pledge to support the TEP Foundation on Giving Tuesday, you help us offer programs like this. You can make your pledge here.
