Trans(forming) is an Atlanta membership-based organization led by people of color and focusing on the needs of trans, intersex, and gender non-conforming people assigned female at birth. They are driven by our deep commitment to ensure all trans and gender non-conforming people, especially trans people of color, can live with fairness, freedom, and justice throughout the metro Atlanta area. They believe that for our people to organize effectively for justice despite the various forms of oppression we struggle against, we must build resources to support our survival; they also believe our liberation cannot be complete without pursuing justice for all people of color, and ending all forms of oppression. To support our community’s survival and self-determination, Trans(forming) builds resources by and for trans and gender non-conforming people, and brings in new members through our meetings, workshops, programs, and events. They also organize marches, rallies, call-in campaigns, and other actions to rapidly respond to specific acts of injustice and to build pressure for policy change. Trans(forming) is an Anchor Organization of Solutions Not Punishment Coalition (SNaP Co) and this is where are amazing advocacy and activism takes place to change the system internally and the hearts and minds of communities.
This organization is supported through the Funding Queerly Giving Circle, which is housed at Astraea.
