The vision of the TRANSLIFE Community Conference and the TRANSLIFE Professional Symposium is to foster a vibrant, healthy, and responsive community of, for, and by our transgender/gender-expansive population, those who love them, and those who serve them. The outcome of these two events is strengthened social networks, deeper community engagement, and increased skills across all three of these groups.
TRANSLIFE strives to meet the needs of diverse populations and for cultural competency, with a goal to provide a safe and affirming environment for those with intersecting oppression, including trans LatinX, POC, black, brown, undocumented, immigrant, disabled, unhoused, neuro-divergent, and sex worker communities, and to be active anti-racist allies.
TRANSLIFE gives equal validity and respect to all gender expressions, including binary, non-binary, gender-fluid, gender-expansive, and two spirit genders.
TRANSLIFE seeks committee members that share values with our mission and standards.
TRANSLIFE is welcoming to allies that are culturally competent in understanding allyship in trans spaces and who strive to create space to uplift trans voices to speak for their needs, understanding that no one but transgender individuals can speak for the trans experience.
The TRANSLIFE Community Conference brings together transgender/gender-expansive individuals from the North Bay counties to increase connections, share information, and expand individual self-advocacy and knowledge.
The TRANSLIFE Professional Symposium is an opportunity to bring together medical, mental/behavioral health, legal, and educational professionals to learn about the unique needs, challenges, and cultural competencies necessary to provide sensitive and appropriate care to the transgender/gender-expansive community.
