Trans Empowerment Project is moving the Trans* community out of crisis and into empowerment by focusing on the abolition of white supremacy to ensure that our most marginalized community members, Disabled Queer and Trans* People of Color, can thrive and live their best lives.


Our agenda is simple:




Trans* includes folks who are Queer, Transgender, Non-Binary, Two-Spirit, Gender Non-Conforming, and other related identities across the gender spectrum. While we center our focus on the liberation and success of Disabled Trans* people of color, our work intentionally supports all Trans* people.

How are we doing it?

Supporting trans* people directly

Trans* people, especially Disabled Queer and Trans* People of Color are among the most impacted by systemic oppression and inequality. We work to ensure that our community has access to the most basic of needs by facilitating emergency food  and gender-affirming clothing deliveries, transportation to safe shelter, and more. 

Collaborating with communities and partners

Together, with our accomplices, we are building the systems we need to move away from a problematic past into a future where our community can thrive.

To be successful, we need more partners like you to join us in doing our work. Interested in partnering? Join us!


Reclaiming our power

Part of what is keeping our community oppressed is that we are not the ones in charge of our own stories. Instead, misinformation is used to silence us as we are also excluded from having our voices amplified as part of the community narrative. It’s time to change that.

Providing Resources and Education

From medical providers to educators, potential employers, partners, and more we are now offering diversity and equity training to help improve understanding and relationships with the Trans* community and teach about how to be a better ally. Contact us directly via email or use the button below to learn how you can become trained as an accomplice.
