The chaos, confusion, and cruelty of the Trump administration is unprecedented. They've waged attacks against the civil rights of anyone they consider “different,” using lies, fear, and dangerous policies to put lives at risk. They’ve targeted asylum seekers, Muslims, survivors of sexual violence, people of color, women, and transgender people.
These attacks are coming at a record pace. By NCTE's count, in the last two years alone there have been at least 85 attacks on trans rights—from our ability to access health care or serve in the military to our right to equal education and employment. (And it doesn't even include the 100+ state and local anti-trans actions). This is not OK and must be stopped.
NCTE is committed to fighting, delaying, or preventing every anti-transgender move by this administration, but the extremists are well funded. We need your help, so we can be, too. Your donation to NCTE today helps us to fight these attacks head on. The extremists are not done—and neither are we.
The National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) is the nation's leading social justice advocacy organization fighting for life-saving change for transgender people.
NCTE advocates to change policies and society to increase understanding and acceptance of transgender people. In the nation’s capital and throughout the country, NCTE works to replace disrespect, discrimination, and violence with empathy, opportunity, and justice.
NCTE envisions a society in which transgender people not only survive, but thrive, with accepting families and communities, full self-determination over their identities and bodies, and freedom from disrespect, discrimination and violence. For this vision to become a reality, we must also create equity, equal opportunity, safety, health, and economic well-being for all people over their entire lifetimes.
By employing a variety of strategies and building lasting relationships, NCTE has a proven record of combating anti-trans policies while advancing positive policy changes for the trans community at the federal, state and local level.
