TRANSGENDER FAITH AND ACTION NETWORK
The newly established Transgender Faith and Action Network (TFAAN) is building upon past work done by the trans* people of color and faith who founded this effort. The network supports the work within organizations and communities to raise awareness, change policies, heal, network and shift culture. We are developing strategies for building the network and enhancing the benefit it will bring to those who are trans* and allies.
LGBTQ ELDER SUPPORT
In partnership with Services and Advocacy for LGBT Elders (SAGE), The Freedom Center was selected to capture stories of LGBTQ Elders as a means of heightening awareness of their unique needs and abilities. Elders learn about rights and resources while exploring ways to enhance quality of life for themselves and their communities. The 2015 Charlotte cohort consists of 23 LGBTQ elders, ages 50-70, four of which are trans* identified.
