TRUTH is rooted in using media and storytelling as methods of liberation, challenging what stories exists to become what stories we need. Our campaigns, organized by the national and regional TRUTH councils, tackle different topics through the lens of media organizing. We work to prioritize the stories of communities within the bigger transgender community who have historically been silenced by mainstream organizing. TRUTH is intentional about centering Black trans folks, femme trans youth, disabled trans individuals and all folks who are at the margins, within the marginalized. How can we share our stories to create change?
