We are launching a new chapter for Transformations in order to center the leadership, wisdom and experiences of trans young women of color and trans young people in survival mode and without traditional systems of support. Our new programming will include a micro-grant cycle (grants up to 1k) to support these young people twice a year, as well as a general monthly emergency fund program. We will prioritize funding for these groups of trans and nonbinary youth seeking support with housing stability, educational and leadership development, gender-affirming medical costs and leading community programs. We will also offer virtual workshops and training online, as well as be available as an organization to help other agencies build TGNC programs. With this new focus, we can expand our outreach to now include a three-state area, specifically focusing on the Ozark region and Midwest, i.e. Kansas, Missouri and Arkansas. We will no longer operate drop-in groups, but instead hold quarterly pop-up field trips and gatherings that prioritize TGNC youth and are open to our larger TGNC community for connection, mentorship and support. We will continue to embrace using social media and our website as a hub for resources, and move viral educational content to Tik Tok to reach young people further, and use Instagram for deep-dive conversations. Our leadership will also prioritize the voices and wisdom of transgender women of color, and we will kick-off these new changes with a two-day virtual summit focused on Transgender Women of Color leaders and influencers on August 11-12, 2021.

We are working hard on preparing a full season of innovative virtual programs and will release information on when these programs and events will go live soon. Please check back here for more information!

If you are a TGNC young person and have ideas or suggestions about a specific workshop topic or theme, please feel free to reach out to us and share!
