Trans Pride Initiative empowers trans and gender diverse persons to rise above social barriers to equitable healthcare, housing, employment, and education.
TPI undertakes our efforts with a vision of creating a world where all identities related to gender are free from stigma, where relationships are subject to no administrative regulation beyond that of individual agency and desire, and where all individuals may freely express themselves in terms of gender and relationships without fear of violence.
No one is disposable
Stigma can be eliminated
We are making a difference
Everyone can contribute to moving our community forward
Community comes first
Service to community builds individual integrity
Our work will only be effective if it is intentionally intersectional
All relationships that are meaningful to those involved are valid
The power of the people is more important than the power of policy
Everyone has the capacity to succeed given the right tools and knowledge
Justice is transformative and restorative, not retributive
We are effective stewards of our world and environment.

TPI is a great place to get started doing the advocacy work so needed in the DFW trans and queer community! Advocating for one of the most vulnerable populations in the criminal justice system is sometimes difficult, but ultimately rewarding! Being able to show my love and be an ally to my incarcerated siblings has been a fulfilling experience. The importance of this work can only be truly seen through experience, so I hope anyone who wants to make a difference joins us!
