This workshop will present the origin, current projects, and lessons learned from the Love Her Collective. The Love Her Collective is a community-academic partnership between researchers in the School of Public Health and the non-profit the Trans Sistas of Color Project.

Since 2017, members of the Love Her Collective have been engaged in focus group research, in-depth interviews, survey research, program evaluation, and intervention adaptation and testing to understand and address the needs of transgender women of color in Detroit. Through lecture and group discussion format, this workshop will provide an overview of building and sustaining community partnerships. Insights and lessons learned for sustaining partnership activities will be discussed in light of historical events in the U.S. and internationally – including the Black Lives Matter movement, the increased visibility of systemic violence toward transgender people worldwide, and the disproportionate impacts of COVID-19 on communities of color.

Additionally, an integral part of the Inspire initiative is pairing advocacy, social change, and activism with skills that enhance a sense of well-being, focus, and interconnectedness. A short guided Mindfulness Meditation practice will be incorporated into the program.
