ANTI-VIOLENCE PROJECT (AVP): Regardless of your gender: whether you’re trans or cis, consider becoming a hotline volunteer, participating in community Safety Nights, or joining the hate violence committee at New York’s Anti-Violence Project.
THE CENTER FOR AMERICAN PROGRESS: If you’re not Transgender, or even a member of the LGBTQ community, but you want to be an ally, consider visiting the Center For American Progress’s website. Their page “Helping State and Local Officials Advocate for LGBT Communities” is a great place to learn about issues that affect trans people nationwide.
