Welcome to ARTEC!

You are NOT alone!

Arkansas Transgender Equality Coalition aims 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 is necessary to build a coalition with members of the greater LGBTQ+ community, supportive families, providers, allies, friends, community leaders, businesses, faith community members and organizations. The community deeply needs 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 to have their voices heard and issues addressed.
