The State of Trans Organizing: Understanding the Needs and Priorities of a Growing but Under-Resourced Movement

By Erin Howe, Somjen Frazer, and Gitta Zomorodi, 2017

Trans people face serious human rights violations in every region of the world, including discrimination, violence, lack of legal status or recognition and lack of access to health care. There are many trans groups working to promote the economic, social and political rights of trans people using diverse strategies such as providing services and advocacy for their constituents and creating space for arts, culture and media initiatives. This study provides a snapshot of the funding and organizational needs and experiences of trans groups by reporting on a survey of 455 autonomous groups and programs of larger organizations from across the world that work specifically and primarily on trans issues or with trans people.
