There are many ways for Transgender and Gender Non-Confirming New Yorkers to become involved in advocacy and policy.
Attend a TGNC Leadership Meeting
The New York Transgender Advocacy Group (NYTAG) holds monthly leadership meetings for those who identify Transgender or Gender Non-Conforming or allies. These meetings are a forum to raise the issues, concerns and needs that are most relevant and urgent to the community. NYTAG seeks to expand the capacity of the TGNC community through providing education and trainings that can lead to personal and professional growth and qualifications.
Trainings relate primarily to advocacy and change making, such as “Know Your Rights”-trainings and leadership development opportunities.
