Who We Are

The BTGNC Collective is a network of Black, trans and gender-nonconforming people organizing for our liberation in the Chicago area. We are membership-based, and our mission and values shift as we continue to grow. Through direct action, community education, and creating spaces for healing, we seek to strengthen the bonds within Black tgnc communities, and fight back against the systems that harm us. We collaborate with other organizations, and see ourselves as one group in a larger web of resistance, dedicated to the liberation of all oppressed people.
