The DC Trans Coalition was invited to participate in the formation of the first-ever national coalition of state-level trans political organizations. (See the press release below for more information.) This weekend, one representative from DCTC will be heading to Memphis to help hammer out a vision and strategy for this newly-formed group. DCTC is excited to travel to Tennessee to bring the perspectives of our local communities and our grassroots organizing experience to this discussion. We hope this group is accountable to and beneficial for marginalized trans folks across the US, and that we can share useful knowledge to help us move forward in each of our local efforts. If any of y’all have friends in Memphis, be sure to let them know they should come on Saturday!
UPDATE: The organization now has a name: the Trans Advocacy Network. They also released a second press release after the meeting in Memphis, which you can now read below the original one.
