Kia ora koutou,
Wellington Rape Crisis has been having lots of discussions over the last while about how we make our services more accessible to people from gender diverse communities and earlier in the year we drafted a new gender diversity policy and we would love to hear from anyone who belongs to these communities who has thoughts on the policy.
A policy is of course only a starting place, so if you or groups you are involved with would like to hear more about what we do and share any thoughts or suggestions about how a service such as ours can be more accessible for rainbow communities we would love to come and meet with you and talk about this some more.
To read the policy click here- Gender Diversity Policy
*Just a note on language we used the really broad terms ‘gender diverse’ or ‘gender minorities’ to umbrella a range of identities including trans -both binary and non binary, whakawāhine, takatāpui, fa’afafine , fakaleiti , ‘akava’ine, intersex, genderqueer, but were cautious about defining this further, but keen to hear thoughts on if we need to do more in terms of definition
Feel free to share this with others. We are keen to hear from you and welcome your thoughts via email office[at]wellingtonrapecrisis.org.nz, phone 04 801 8970 or we can arrange to chat face to face.
Please don’t use the comments function for this feedback as it requests a name and email 🙂
