Over 400 Trans Community Leaders Stand With Former NCTE Staff

Over 400 Trans Community Leaders Stand With Former NCTE Staff

We are transgender and gender non-conforming advocates, attorneys, and community leaders who stand in solidarity with the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) workers who were pushed out of their jobs. We write in our individual capacities, not on behalf of any organization we work for or may be associated with. Some of us have included our organization name with our signature for identification purposes only.

We are admirers of NCTE. Many of us rely on NCTE’s work and research to do our day-to-day jobs advocating for policy change, bringing impact litigation, organizing our communities or providing direct services to trans and gender non-conforming people. But we cannot sit idly by and watch as yet another form of institutional violence hurts our communities. 

We are devastated, but sadly we are not shocked. We have all experienced discrimination because of our trans or gender nonconforming identities. For many of us, these experiences inspired us to work for organizations that fight for the rights of our communities. Many of us at some point have thought, “If I would not be safe working at a trans-led organization advocating for our collective liberation, then where would I be safe?” 

However, we know that trans-led organizations are not immune to oppression. Many of us have witnessed or experienced racism, classism, transphobia, homophobia, xenophobia, or ableism while working within trans-led organizations. We recognize that our society is inherently racist, classist, transphobic, homophobic, xenophobic, and ableist. We are, thus, not surprised that nonprofit organizations that mimic for-profit hierarchical structures, including trans-led organizations, suffer from the same problems.

More troubling than hearing that NCTE has struggled with racism and other forms of oppression is what we have learned is the response of NCTE management when confronted. When almost all workers in an organization stand together and demand persons at the top look in the mirror and adress intersecting forms of oppression, the answer — at least, if the goal is to address the problem — is not to force those same workers to leave.

We are distressed that as trans and gender nonconforming people are fighting for survival, the NCTE workers fighting for our communities have lost their livelihoods, economic security, and safety. We are pained that our laws and structures enable NCTE, whose charitable purpose is to advocate for trans and gender non-conforming people, to commit violence against the very people it aims to protect. We are disturbed that leaders at NCTE are unable to see how the power they wield is harming our trans and gender nonconforming communities. 

We stand in solidarity with the NCTE workers who were pushed out of their jobs.
