History

The Trans Sistas of Color Project (TSoCP) was founded in Detroit, in 2015, as a result of a sudden rise in murders to transgender and gender non-conforming peoples. The TSoCP organizes trans-centric programming, events, and workshops aimed at women of color in the Detroit and Metro Detroit area. The TSoCP promotes and encourages trans activism and advocacy, uplifting the members of the trans community.
