TRACTION cultivates connection and visibility for 2STGNC+ people through community service in support of underserved populations.

We aim to empower and uplift Two-Spirit, trans+, nonbinary, and gender-diverse and -nonconforming (2STGNC+) people and create visibility through social engagement, outreach, and community service. Through collaboration with existing groups whose programs reach underserved populations within the Pacific Northwest and beyond, TRACTION provides support in the form of volunteer power, funds, and publicity.
