We welcome your donation to our 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Help TRACTION hit the ground running!


We are focused on the trans community, which includes transgender, two-spirit, nonbinary, questioning, agender, and the many other names we use to define our gender identity. We are also allies, friends, and family members who desire to help everyone with the mission of embracing gender authenticity.


Part of being a community is taking some time to hang out, relax, and have fun. This is where our summit events come into play. Summits provide an opportunity to meet each other, learn from each other, and have fun with each other. Together our voices are amplified, and together we can empower the voices of other transgender and nonbinary people. At a summit, we can come together, experience the richness of our community, and let our voices ring out!


To make the world a better place, we cannot sit around and hope someone else will make it better for us. Our goal is cultivate a body of members eager to collaborate with other organizations and offer our volunteer power to assist underserved populations. In doing this, we increase trans visibility within the broader community while helping those in need.
