Are you Trans-identified and living in Missouri? If you are, we encourage you to take the Trans-Missouri Needs Assessment Survey.
Noting that the National Transgender Discrimination Survey (NTDS), conducted by the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force (NGLTF) only garnered 128 individual responses in Missouri, we are projecting that with our own state-wide resources we can reach out to more of the (Missouri) Trans Population. We hope that those that are trans-identified residing in Missouri, take part in this survey in which we can use the data to define our Policy Priority over the next wo years.
The data collection will be done in a manner in which total confidentiality is assured, inputs from varying aspects of those Trans-identified throughout the state of Missouri will be collected and analyzed. We are seeking such demographics as how one identifies, location by zip code, income and marital status. Other metrics sought will be instances of bias and discrimination such as in the workplace, incarceration and public accommodations. While we know the national statistics, it is imperative we gather as much Missouri data as we can, to better serve the Missouri Trans Community.
Please take the survey today!
