The Trans Worker Center is receiving a planning grant to embark on a project to organize trans workers in the greater Los Angeles area and focus on campaigns centered around public policy and changing corporate practices that explicitly affect trans and gender nonconforming workers.

The project involves both research and organizing with outreach and data collection methods as an organizing tool to build a base of worker leaders. The research question is a general descriptive investigation into the conditions of trans people working in service industry jobs and who are unemployed.
