Trans People of Color Coalition is a non-profit organization founded by attorney, professor and activist Kylar Broadus. TPOCC is the only national social justice organization that promotes the interest of Trans People of Color.
Trans People of Color Coalition (TPOCC) exists to advance justice for all trans people of color. We amplify our stories, support our leadership, and challenge issues of racism, transphobia, and transmisogyny.
Kylar W. Broadus is a Black man of trans experience that has been a pioneer in the movement LGB, Transgender, and Non-binary movements as an attorney, long-time activist, public speaker, author, and professor. Broadus is known worldwide for his pioneering body of work. He has extensive policy and legal experience in movement-building, stewardship, and leadership. TPOCC was formed in the hope that it would be shaped by younger voices of all races because there was no national presence for a united front for BiPOCC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color). We want to make sure our work is intersectional and intergenerational as we've grown. A movement is not complete without everyone. We do not exclude any voices of color but encourage all to work with us. While uplifting our differences so that we can come together and embrace our commonalities. We could all share and grow.
Broadus has done policy and legal work and been in the political arena since his early teen years. In 2012, he was the first known person of trans experience to testify before the U.S. Senate on behalf of the Employment Discrimination Act. He's worked on many other pieces of legislation on the federal, state, and local levels. He's served in several appointed positions and on various boards. Broadus considers himself to be a servant leader and to make changes in as many ways possible to make this a better world.
