Founded in 2014, Trans Lifeline is the largest direct service nonprofit to trans people in North America, connecting trans people to the community, resources, and support we need to survive and thrive. Trans Lifeline’s hotline cares for trans people in the U.S. and Canada through moments of crisis and suicidality; our Microgrants program provides low-barrier grants to trans people in need of legal name changes and updated government IDs, as well as specialized support for trans people who are incarcerated or undocumented; our advocacy program runs the #SafeHotlines Campaign to ensure safety, transparency, and agency on crisis hotlines and pushes other crisis lines to take cops and non-consensual intervention out of their support models.

Trans Lifeline envisions a world where trans people have the connection, economic security, and care everyone needs and deserves – free of prisons and police.
