The Trans Woman Empowerment Initiative’s slogan is “WE SPEAK FOR US, BY US!” TWEI unites to create safety, resources, and holistic health for trans communities. Rooted in ending the violence and injustices against Trans Women of Color, they are committed to being vigilant in addressing all the co-factors that affect trans women and families. They stand together, devoted to growing a powerful sisterhood of Trans Women of Color. In their first year, the TWEI formed a core leadership of multi-ethnic, multi-generational trans women of color.
This organization is supported through the Funding Queerly Giving Circle, which is housed at Astraea.
