The evening’s presentation to parents, guardians, and friends of the community as part of the Community Speaker Series provided actionable steps for guardians to engage in identity conversations with their children. Be sure to create space in conversations and allow both parties time to think and respond, ensure that the person you are speaking with has choices in the scope, direction, and goal of the conversation, and finally keep it brief.

FPS thanks Dr. Talusan for her time and invaluable insight.
