TransLatin@ Coalition has developed the following reports:
Transvisible: Transgender Latina Immigrants in US Society
The study seeks to make visible the social and legal barriers that negatively impact the lives of many Trans Latina Immigrants. As this data shows, most problems affecting Trans Latinas have a structural or legislative root. Once these findings are disseminated and discussed, key stakeholders will have a deeper understanding of issues affecting Trans Latin@ Immigrants. The TransVisible Research Team hopes that this understanding informs the development of new attitudes, policies, laws, programs and every-day behaviors that humanize and respect, rather than devalue and disregard Trans Latina Immigrants residing in the United States. After all, as this study shows, they have migrated to the United States mainly in pursuit of a dignified life
The State of Trans Health: TransLatin@s and Their Healthcare Needs
The TransLatin@ Coalition seeks to improve the health outcomes of Trans people in California. This report will provide evidence of the specific healthcare needs of Trans Latin@s and what makes Trans Latin@s healthy individuals in the southern part of the golden state. California is recognized across the nation as a model state that provides the most comprehensive legislation and protections towards Trans people. However, there is still a lot of work that needs to be done to address the basic social supportive needs of Trans Latin@ people. We hope that this report provides a road map to assess what is it that supports trans Latin@s to fully realize their humanity, health, and happiness here in California.
We release this policy agenda out of necessity, with 396 Transgender murders reported in 2018, and many more left untold, hundreds of homeless TGI people, rising HIV/STD rates among our community, healthcare protections at risk, and various other forms of institutional violence; the system is legally killing us. As the TransLatin@ Coalition expands and serves as a vital resource for the TGI community, regardless of race, creed, age, size, immigration status, ability, or any other systemically stigmatized identity--we notice a direct lack of resources and advocacy efforts centering the struggles of our community. This policy agenda will be used not only to work toward securing the legislative rights for our community and to hold the state accountable, but to demand moral integrity from society as a whole.
