Welcome to the Arkansas Transgender Equality Coalition!
You are NOT alone!
We aim to advance equality, justice and inclusiveness for transgender and gender non-conforming Arkansans through a statewide trans-led organization. Ultimately, improving the lives of all transgender & gender non-binary Arkansans.
The transgender community in Arkansas may be small, but our supporters are vast. It will be necessary to build a coalition with members of the greater LGBTQI* community, supportive families, providers, allies, friends, community leaders, businesses, faith community members and organizations. The community is in extreme need of resources and infrastructure and it requires a team effort.
Transgender people often don’t get a seat at the table in decision making processes in Arkansas, and when they do, they are often invited to a table someone else set up. Let’s build a table together for the transgender community of Arkansas so more people can get a seat, their voices heard and issues addressed. Trans rights are human rights!!!
