transACTION: A Transgender Curriculum For Churches and Religious Institutions is an interactive curriculum. The curriculum is FREE and available for immediate download as a PDF, including a leader’s guide.
transACTION was developed by Barbara Satin as a part of her work with the Institute for Welcoming Resources/NGLTF and launched in 2009. The program frames three sessions:
- Session 1: How Do We Get to Understanding
- Session 2: How Do We Get to Acceptance
- Session 3: How Do We Get to Welcoming
Session 1 teaches basic transgender concepts, while Session 2 delves specifically into Christian resources. The final session looks at change-making within a congregational context.
This is a do-it-yourself curriculum, though I would recommend that it be led by someone who is familiar with transgender experience, in order to be able to answer questions that come up in discussion.
