Our Mission

To uplift the narratives, lived experiences and leadership of trans and gender non-conforming people of color, our families and comrades as we build towards collective liberation for all oppressed people.


There is a critical need for trans youth of color led initiatives that cultivate affirming spaces for our communities to engage in healing and restorative justice.  We lean in with an intentional response to the trauma our community has endured by leading with the voices and leadership of our youth and young people.


TWOCC seeks to shift the narrative of surviving to thriving in our communities. We strive to build economic empowerment and global networks that connect rural communities with suburban enclaves, inner city youth with elders, donors with Black trans entrepreneurs, healers with those seeking to be whole and collaborators with agitators.


Our work elevates those in our community who have had their voices stolen, usurped, commodified, silenced and exploited by cis gaze, colonization, anti-Blackness, imperialism and transphobia.

At Trans Women of Color Collective, our work centers healing and restorative justice. As we build economic growth and development for our community, we are enhancing the capacity of future leaders. Pouring into the lives of Black trans folk is a revolutionary act.
