We can not claim actual equality in this country until disabled trans people of color are THRIVING!

It’s time to stop the hateful attacks against marginalized communities and start creating more collaborative and supportive spaces. 

 End White Supremacy


Trans rights are human rights, yet we are too often denied access to even the most basic and vital of resources. 

We will never truly achieve equity until disabled Trans people of color are THRIVING. 

If you’re not building equity with us in mind, you aren’t building equity.

Protect Trans Rights!

In order for our community to thrive we need YOU, to join us in building the equitable solutions of the future.
