Transgender migrants are building community, safety, and power through programs like TLC’s Black LGBTQIA+ Migrant Project and organizations like Familia: Trans Queer Liberation Movement.
As the U.S. government continues to target Black and brown trans migrants living in the U.S. and at the border for violence, abuse, and imprisonment, legal resources are critical for transgender migrants and allies working to keep people safe and free. TLC has resources for people personally navigating the immigration system, trans people preparing communities for ICE raids, and advocates working to educate asylum judges and policymakers on the unique conditions trans migrants face.
