Transgender resource, support, and advocacy.
Recursos, apoyo y defensa de los personas transgénero.
Trans-E-Motion is a volunteer-run nonprofit organization based in California’s Central Valley that honors and celebrates the lives of transgender and gender diverse persons, both past and present, to bring about social change for the benefit of the community through activities, outreach, and events that provide education, advocacy, and support to all.
Trans-E-Motion was founded in 2005 by a steering committee focused on organizing the annual Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR). Over the years, the event focused more on providing resources and partnering with the community. Trans-E-Motion was founded to provide this support year-round.
In 2010, Trans-E-Motion became an official 501(c)3 non-profit community benefit organization and began hosting monthly socials, inviting transgender people and their allies to attend as their authentic selves.
In 2011, Trans-E-Motion hosted its first monthly support group, and also began participating in resource fairs, organizing speaker’s panels to educate in classrooms of various disciplines, and presenting transgender 101 presentations.
Trans-E-Motion continues to grow and focuses on providing support, advocacy, and education for the transgender community and allies.
Current activities include the annual Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV), Transgender Day of Remembrance, monthly support groups, and offering educational workshops and presentations to the professional, academic, and allied communities.
