Chicago Therapy Collective's Trans-Inclusive Chicago! Campaign is made up of 5 initiatives: Trans Art Is, #HireTransNOW, Get Trained, Get Feedback, and our Pilot Trans-Inclusive Andersonville! work. All initiatives are supported, led, and challenged by the Chicago Therapy Collective Community Advisory Board to ensure Trans-Inclusive Chicago! is a campaign made for and by the Trans and QTPOC community members it is intended to celebrate and support.

Want to help grow Trans-Inclusive Chicago? The campaign relies on cross-community leadership.

The Chicago Therapy Collective is a local registered 501( c )3 not-for-profit mobilizing to create more safe, just, and inclusive neighborhoods for Trans and QTPOC individuals and communities. All sponsor and donation monies and volunteer hours go directly towards fueling our Trans Inclusive Chicago! Initiatives.

Our TDOV 2019 Celebration is made possible thanks to the support of Early to Bed Chicago, Equality Illinois, National Lawyers Guild Chicago, IL State Representative Kelly Cassidy, Transgender Law Center, Orange Shoe Fitness Andersonville, and City Winery.
