Several times a year, Prevent Child Abuse Indiana hosts either a Conference or Signature Event, Workshops, Webinars and fundraising events to help educate our communities and raise awareness. We hope you’ll attend, and help us further our mission of keeping kids safe.
Parent’s Café: LGBTQ+ 101
January 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Topic: LGBTQ+ 101
Date: January 20, 2022
Time: Noon – 1:00 p.m. (EST)
Description: We will be discussing the basics of the LGBTQ+ community, the challenges they face, and how our LGBTQ+ youth is impacted every day, in absolutely every facet of their lives. This will be an engaging, interactive presentation that will discuss gender, assigned sex vs. sex identification, inclusive language usage, gender identity, social pressures, bullying, and mental health necessities. How can we be good stewards, caretakers, and advocates for our LGBTQ+ youth? How do we create safe space? What does it all look like, and how do we have those conversations with our kids and those that are involved in their growth and care?
Please join us. This is your chance to ask all the questions that you’ve been uncomfortable to ask. This is your chance to participate in education and dialogue that will improve life-outcomes for our LGBTQ+ youth, and maybe save some lives. I’m looking forward to seeing you all.
Our Nurturing Parents Café is more of a facilitated discussion instead of one of our regular trainings/webinars, Training Credits will not be available.
The Parent Cafes are a monthly, relaxed discussion around Parenting Topics. Participants are encouraged to bring YOUR OWN ISSUES and gain insights and resources!

Having grown up in Indianapolis as a member of the LGBTQ+ community and experiencing many of the same struggles that our youth experience today, Angie seized the opportunity to work for IYG, with the sole intent of creating safe space for our LGBTQ+ youth and young adults. Space in which they can grow, learn, build healthy relationships, have equal access to quality medical services, safe and equitable housing solutions, and contact with legal aid. Angie is responsible for all grant reporting and billing for IYG, as well as providing educational trainings for businesses, schools, and staff in medical facilities thus allowing for negative societal beliefs, actions, and practices can be refurbished into an inclusive, responsive, and safe space for our LGBTQ+ youth.
