Founded in 2016, we are an inclusive family and educator advocacy organization, supporting gender-expansive and transgender children and youth, capturing resources and research to share with other families and educators on their own unique path with their child or student through the journey of social transition. As advocates, we want to amplify the experiences of our community with one another to share in solidarity and support, share the research and resources we find along the way to inform our unique journeys, and provide opportunities for outreach to our communities. As you know, proudly traveling the path with our incredible gender-expansive and transgender children can often feel like a roller coaster of emotions. Building our connection with one another through a safe, compassionate, and inclusive environment is an essential part of our mission.
