The Transgender Faith and Action Network Conference is a three-day conference for the trans* community and their allies. The conference will be held at Charlotte Hilton University Place in Charlotte, NC.

Attendees will have the opportunity to network, gain deeper insights on trans* issues involving legal protections, health/wellness, employment, and growing more inclusive faith communities. These opportunities will help trans* communities and their allies heal, build, grow and shift culture within the faith communities and all over the world.
The TFAAN conference was and outgrowth of the TransFaith In Color Summit and Conferences developed by The Freedom Center of Social Justice (FCSJ). The TransFaith In Color Summit and Conferences were held in Charlotte back in 2011 and 2012, but realized the need for a nationally recognized conference to expand the work being done, and their success.
The Freedom Center for Social Justice is an organization that was founded by Bishop Tonyia M. Rawls back in 2009. She is a spiritual leader and social justice activist, and has inspired the development of programs that have touched the lives of hundreds within the Carolina’s and promises the support to continually grow to meet the critical needs of these communities here, and nationwide.
We here at Campus Pride are proud partners of the TFAAN conference who have, and will continue, to work with and present a workshop on LGBT-friendly campuses with the help of our Friendly Campus Climate Index. Campus Pride Executive Director, Shane Windmeyer, also serves on the advisory board of the TFAAN conference. Campus Pride appreciates the important work that is being done by The Freedom Center for Social Justice.
