Mission:
TransActive Gender Center provides a holistic range of services and expertise to empower transgender and gender diverse children, youth and their families in living healthy lives, free of discrimination.

Advocacy

"Transgender children and youth and their families have many needs - none more important than defending their right to not be bullied, intimidated, discriminated against or isolated by policies that do not respect transgender identity, or individuals and organizations who knowingly or unknowingly engage in actions that will place them on the wrong side of history."

Jenn Burleton, TGC Founder & Executive Director

At TransActive Gender Center we make every effort to engage individuals and organizations in educational opportunities that will lead to increased affirmation of transgender and gender diverse children and youth. When educational outreach and otherwise reasonable requests are insufficient to ensure that children, youth and their families are treated respectfully or enjoying the rights they are entitled to, enhanced advocacy engagement may be necessary.

The TransActive Gender Center Advocacy Project offers grass-roots, non-legal representation and support to gender diverse children and youth age 23-and-under and their families.

Our staff will meet with you to develop and propose an 'Action Plan' based upon the details you provide. We will then, with your approval, engage organizations, groups or individuals you believe are infringing on your rights or the rights of your child and family with respect to their gender identity or gender expression.

Relevant areas of advocacy we have engaged in include:

  • Child Custody & Visitation
  • K-12 Schools & School Districts
  • Insurance Appeals
  • Higher Education
  • Employment
  • Youth in Local, County or State Custody
