Intended Audience: This webinar is for all state employees. There is no cost to attend. For information on how to register, please email us at ADR.Bureau@gsd.nm.gov

This training by TNET (Transgender/Nonbinary Education & Trainings) is the tried-and-true workhorse of trans education! Even old pros can learn a thing or two from this training. We’ll cover everything you need to know from the ground up, get a little bit of practice in, and learn how we can all be better advocates.

Facilitated by Charlie Alexander and Stacy Fatemi of TNET (Transgender/Nonbinary Education & Trainings)

Charlie Alexander (they/them) is a trans and nonbinary parent to two kids. After winding up pregnant at age 17 without access to any support, resources, or assistance, Charlie became ferociously passionate about educating folks on important topics such as sexual health, boundaries and consent, radical love, all things sex, sexuality, and gender-related. They believe whole-heartedly that education is the foundation to liberation which led them to join Stacy in building TNET in January of 2023. In 2022, Charlie earned two Bachelor of Arts degrees in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and Sociology, as well as a Certificate in Race and Social Justice from the University of New Mexico. Charlie is passionate about intersectional feminism, disability justice, and transgender issues.

Stacy Fatemi (they/them) is a nonbinary trans educator from Albuquerque, New Mexico. After coming out as trans at the age of 17, Stacy began casually educating others to address a gap in gender knowledge that affected their everyday life. Now, at age 26, they do transgender trainings and workshops for organizations all around the country with TNET. Before TNET came to be, Stacy did trainings as the first Education & Outreach Program Manager for the Transgender Resource Center of New Mexico, and made educational works for the Health Equity Alliance for LGBTQ+ New Mexicans. When not at work, Stacy can be found making metal, punk, and ambient music with their longtime friend, the 6-string bass guitar.
