Resources for Transgender & Non Binary residents of Dallas County
Nu Trans Movement Inc, provides assistance, training and education to local and state institutions to increase understanding of Transgender people. In Dallas, Texas the fourth-largest metropolitan area in the country with about 7.5 million residents, NTMI works to improve the quality of life for Trans folks through Hiv/Aids prevention & care, identity document assistance programs and referrals to physicians that provide hormone replacement and mental health therapy.
Nu Trans Movement Inc, envisions a world in which Transgender people are valued as a contributing member of society. We envision a world in which trans people of color are not murdered for simply living their truth. For this vision to become a reality, we must work together to rebuild a system and culture that was designed to exclude many groups of people.
Nu Trans Movement, Inc was founded in 2016 by a Transgender activist for the specific purpose of improving the quality of life for Trans-folk in Dallas, Texas. Starting out as a Facebook group, she quickly noticed the urgent need for services in the Transgender communities across the state of Texas. With continued support from the community, we now have 3 staff people, over 100 active volunteers and we are currently seeking our first office space.
