“I refer youth and families to Stand with Trans because it is an accepting, supportive place for youth and families to connect and learn from each other.”Sara Wiener, LMSW
“I am a mother of a transgender teen. I don’t know what I would do without the guidance and unwavering support of SWT, especially Roz Gould Keith. This group gives me hope and seems to be helping my teen feel less isolated and more hopeful.”Julie G.
“Stand with Trans has been a lifeline for our family. The support and validation that we feel from other families, and from the LEADERSHIP, has been tremendous. Our family has also participated in social events, like the summer picnic, and the last two yearly conferences. These have been both informative and fun.”Jaye Lacerte
“Stand With Trans is an essential resource and source of support to the youth and families that I see in the office.”Daniel Shumer, MD, MPH
