This coalition came together in response to the murder of Taja Gabriella de Jesus, a community member who was killed in February 2015 by her partner in San Francisco. We do this work in her name because we are not willing to lose any other members of our community due to anti-trans violence.
We understand how important it is to promote leadership, to increase collaboration, and to strengthen the capacity of Trans communities and organizations to end transphobia. We are guided by the needs of the most vulnerable within our community, including Black Trans women, undocumented Trans women, and Trans women who have been formerly incarcerated. TAJA’s Coalition is founded and led by trans women of color because we are the leaders we need.
