They/Them/Theirs Arizona

I grew up in a small border community in Arizona, and have always cherished my town. I am currently a high school junior and am activitely involved in my community. However, I want to make a greater change for other LGBTQ teens, especially considering the lack of resources in communities such as mine – small, rural, and largely low income. I have grown much more interested in activism these past few months, and can’t wait to grow more. TRUTH will give me the opportunity to grow as an organizer, meet other like minded trans activists, and provide better resources within my community; I am so excited to work with the rest of the TRUTH team!
