There is a critical need for trans people of color led initiatives that cultivate affirming spaces for our communities to engage in healing and restorative justice.  We are creating the change we seek. Our work centers three fundamental areas; Health and Wellness, Art and Culture, Economic and Racial Justice.  Our community initiatives, events, lectures, retreats and gatherings use art, culture and media as tools to engage community members in exploring and activating their power as a transformative change agent deeply invested in collective healing and liberation.
