♦ How our story began

The driving force behind Translatina Network is our transfeminist peers and colleagues. Our initiative was born of their collective efforts fighting for Translatina rights in New York. As community members and providers they continue to lead the way while remembering: “This is our story, our fight, our identity as Translatina women.” It takes a strong team to deliver strong results! We are an exceptional team providing everything you need to stay informed and actively engaged with your community.
