Wholeness & Justice is a programme managed by CAISO: Sex & Gender Justice that expands access by diverse Intersex, Trans, Bisexual, Lesbian, Gay (ITBLG+) people in Trinidad and Tobago to wholeness, justice and health and human services.
The programme is committed to responding to violations of ITBLG+ community members, with an emphasis on trans, non-binary, gender-non-conforming and intersex people; and to deliver clinically competent, trauma-informed interventions that enable healing and resilience. We aim to reduce client vulnerability; strengthen individual self-advocacy, justice-seeking, community mutual action and vigilance, and citizenship; reduce impunity; and make systems more responsive and just.
Wholeness & Justice is currently funded by the Arcus and Astraea Foundations, and supported by the Alliance for Justice & Diversity, of which CAISO: Sex and Gender Justice is a member. The Wholeness & Justice team of service providers comprises a Community Lawyer, Clinical Administrator, Community Caseworker, and Programme Associate, each with key expertise and experience.
