Trans* Human Rights Protections

Trans* people face disproportionate levels of violence and human rights abuses. In every society they are excluded from basic services, including health care and education, and often have little support from families and communities. In the vast majority of countries, there are no human rights protections against discrimination based on gender identity or expression. Astraea supports organizations and campaigns that work to secure human rights protections for trans* and gender non-conforming people.
