Transgender Voices for Freedom

In most parts of the country, Americans have yet to meet a transgender person. That means it can be hard to understand the challenges transgender Americans face every single day. We must change that in order to have an honest dialogue about the comprehensive protections transgender Americans desperately need. The Transgender Freedom Project works to amplify the stories of transgender people, their families, and their loved ones, in order to paint the complete picture of who transgender people are and the need for comprehensive, inclusive nondiscrimination protections.
