The legacy of colonialism and white supremacy shapes state violence not only at home, but also abroad and at our borders. We serve trans people from stolen, unceded Indigenous lands. From the widespread genocide of indigenous communities and denigration of Two Spirit people, to violent intervention, sanctions, and environmental destruction in other countries — harm and trauma directly impact many of the indigenous and migrant trans people we serve in the US & Canada and around the world.
Trans people in or from countries and cultures targeted by war and xenophobia often face a double struggle to survive in the face of both transphobia and military violence. In the US, indigenous lands are often militarized, and ICE and CBP operations target migrants without extending federal civil rights, detaining trans migrants indefinitely in abusive, improperly gendered facilities.
Our Hotline provides peer and crisis support in Spanish, as well as English. We provide support to trans veterans and affirm the right of trans people to be openly employed by the US government, but we stand with trans people around the world impacted by imperialism, militarism, anti-immigrant and anti-Asian hate, Islamophobia, antisemitism, and pinkwashing. We stand in opposition to militarism at home, at our borders, and across the world. We call for abolishing ICE and are in support of full rights and asylum for trans immigrants, of indigenous sovereignty, and of BDS movements. We provide safe, anonymous services to any trans or questioning person regardless of their ethnic, political, religious backgrounds, tribal affiliation, veteran, or migrant/documented status.
