For many people in the Trans community, it can be difficult to find any kind of work, let alone adequate work that pays a living wage.
According to our friends at the National Center for Transgender Equality :
“More than one in four transgender people have lost a job due to bias, and more than three-fourths have experienced some form of workplace discrimination. Refusal to hire, privacy violations, harassment, and even physical and sexual violence on the job are common occurrences, and are experienced at even higher rates by transgender people of color.”
We at Trans Empowerment Project, can help with our Trans Job Connection group on Facebook.
We have volunteers that will take a look at your resume and offer suggestions to help land a better job. In many cases, we even help find employment opportunities; especially with companies that are Trans Affirming.
