Translatinx Network has both a local and national focus, with a mission is to promote the healthy development of trans people through the delivery of a wide range of information and services. Through promotion, outreach in education, and capacity-building, we encourage and strengthen the creation of safe and productive environments for TGNC+ community members.
How our story began
The driving force behind Translatinx Network is our transfeminist peers and colleagues. Our initiative was born of their collective efforts fighting for Translatinx rights in New York. As community members and providers, we continue to lead the way while remembering: “This is our story, our fight, our identity as Translatina women” – we are a strong team, and we deliver strong results! We are an exceptional team providing everything you need to stay informed and actively engaged with your community.
Translatinx Network increases the capacity of all transgender community members through advocacy, education and social support.
Our vision is to implement sustainable programs that improve the quality of life of all transgender community members for years to come.

- We value the Freedom to live in our truth.
- We value the Kinship that connects us.
- We value Dignity and it is reflected in all aspects of our work.

Founded in 2007, Translatinx Network is made up of trans individuals working locally and nationally to promote the healthy development of transgender Latinx communities. Through the delivery of a wide range of information about services and events, educational outreach, and capacity building resources, Translatinx Network supports individuals in maintaining personal wellness and developing leadership skills. In doing so, we help to create safe and productive spaces for transgender women free of transphobia and discrimination. Translatinx Network addresses the collective concerns of Latinx transgender individuals including the recognition of their rights, giving a voice to the voiceless, and advocating for change promoting a direct connection to policy makers.
