For the 4th Day of TransGiving, the TransAdvocate has picked The Trans Youth Support Network (TYSN)! TYSN is a partnership of youth and community members who work together to support trans youth in Minnesota. TYSN empowers trans youth to address issues affecting their quality of life and we think that’s awesome!
TYSN’s mission is to promote racial, social, and economic justice for trans youth, with the freedom to self-define gender identity and expression. TYSN hosts activities and support meetings that help trans youth overcome transphobia and develop their leadership talents.
The TransAdvocate is beginning a new holiday tradition. We’re calling it the “12 Days of #TransGiving.” This December series will feature awesome trans nonprofits and causes worthy of your support. Most trans causes and/or nonprofits really struggle. We want to highlight worthy causes and foster a culture of investing in our community. We encourage you to spread the word about #TransGiving and support the awesome causes profiled in this series!
