A Word From Celeste Fiore, Esq.
“New Jersey has long needed a transgender focused non-profit led by transgender people to center our voices and our needs. the Trans Affirming Alliance arose from the tragedy of Ashley Moore’s death when connections were made across racial and socioeconomic lines within Essex County, between legal providers and community organizations. The overarching goal is to improve the lives of our transgender siblings by bringing resources to community members through community partners, training of subject matter experts on the specific needs of transgender people, and broad-based education on the needs of the transgender community. These are lofty goals but made all the more attainable due to increased use of internet-based communication platforms. Our community has found workarounds to survive in a larger society that does not always respect our humanity—through the Trans Affirming Alliance we demand our human rights.”
