Transgender Law Center (TLC) is the largest national trans-led organization advocating self-determination for all people. Grounded in legal expertise and committed to racial justice, TLC employs a variety of community-driven strategies to keep transgender and gender nonconforming people alive, thriving, and fighting for liberation.
The Trans Agenda for Liberation is a community-led guide towards the world we deserve. Trans people hold the knowledge, power, and joy to create a future where we can all not only survive but thrive. This agenda addresses the urgent political, legal, and social violence enacted against our communities, while channeling trans imagination to bring our boldest visions to life. The Trans Agenda grows out of the work that communities and individuals are already doing, and points toward work that still needs to be done.
The Trans Agenda centers the lives and voices of trans people of color, who have too often had to advance our collective liberation from the margins. Trans justice is migrant justice, disability justice, racial justice, environmental justice, reproductive justice, economic justice, and gender justice.
An agenda for trans liberation is a blueprint for liberation for all.
T+ Needs Assessment
In July, 2019, Positively Trans (T+), a project developed and directed by Transgender Law Center Senior Strategist Cecilia Chung, announced the results of their 2018 needs assessment of transgender and gender nonconforming (TGNC) people living with HIV in three locations in the U.S.: Detroit, Michigan, New Orleans, Louisiana, and South Florida. The cross-site report, Wellness for Our Communities, focused on barriers to health and well-being for TGNC people living with HIV and on their legal and health priorities.
