TransPowerment

Description:

The TransPowerment program works to reduce HIV infection and transmission among transgender persons and their partners in Santa Clara County. TransPowerment is a program that builds strength within the transgender community by providing culturally appropriate services through workshops, outreach, and case management. The TransPowerment program gives trans-women of color a forum to voice their opinions, express their concerns and meet other women with whom they can identify.
