What is Trans & Caffeinated?

Trans & Caffeinated is a communications and advocacy consulting company offering services aimed toward the liberation of all transgender people, including workplace training and education, research and data collection, event planning, & more.

Vision Statement

Trans & Caffeinated envisions a world where all people play a role in fighting for liberation, tailored to their unique strengths. This work most sustainable when we are able to identify the intrinsic motivators that drive us to do good, rather than allowing guilt or shame to take root. In the world we dream about, all people have access to the tools and resources they need not just to survive, but truly thrive. This world is free from prisons, policing, and all forms of oppression and violence. By embracing our collective strength and capacity to impact change, this world is within our grasp—within our lifetimes.

Four Pillars

These pillars are the north star that guide my work.

If you're interested in working together, drop a line below.

I. Wealth Redistribution,

through mutual aid and fundraisers, putting money directly into the hands of community leaders and marginalized people who need it.

II. Storytelling & Narrative Change,

the power of empathy and giving trans people agency over how our stories are told.

III. Relinquishing Shame,

and examining how guilt and shame hold us back from being effective allies.

IV. Resources & Education,

empowering trans folks, families, and communities with the tools, resources, and knowledge we need to affect change within and around us.
