TRACTION (trans • community • action) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit championing for Trans Visibility and Connection Through Advocacy, Collaboration, Community Service, and Summit Gatherings

We aim to empower and uplift transgender and nonbinary people and create visibility through social engagement, outreach and community service. Through collaboration with existing groups whose programs are serving marginalized and underserved populations within the Pacific Northwest, TRACTION will provide support in the form of volunteer power, funds and publicity.
