Trans United Logo

The mission of Trans United is to develop community informed trans advocacy agendas; to support the development of a cadre of trans organizers and activists with the consciousness, skills and experience to help to define and lead winning campaigns to achieve those policy agendas, and to do this work in a manner that develops leadership and builds the organizational capacity of the trans movement and solidarity and deeper connections with other social justice movements.

Trans United centers and prioritizes groups within the transgender community that have historically been excluded from access to resources and decision making with the goal not just of inclusion and representation but transformation of the underlying dynamic of exclusion by building skills and knowledge, expanding access to formal and informal capital and building a cohort of trans leaders to support.
