TransYouth Family Allies

imfatyfa

In carrying out its mission, TransYouth Family Allies is guided by the following principles:

    • All children, regardless of individual socioeconomic conditions, age, color, creed, disability, gender identity, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, family status or military status should have an opportunity to be represented by our organization.
    • The interests and concerns of all transgender and gender variant children are valuable and should be heard and fairly represented. This includes all classes, subgroups, and minorities.
    • Mutual benefit can be achieved by working with other organizations in the pursuit of civil and human rights for transgender and gender variant children.
    • TYFA empowers children and families by partnering with educators, service providers and communities, to develop supportive environments in which gender may be expressed and respected.
