During the end of October and early November 2019, LUC SSW dual degree (MSW/MA) student Aces Lira attended a series of week-long meetings and training for the International Partnership for Queer Youth Resilience (INQYR) in Mexico City. Aces presented on his current work as part of the U.S. region of INQYR and the International Student Training Network (ISTN) with regard to a photo elicitation project examining resilience among transgender and non-binary youth.
