The Trans Counseling Advocacy Research and Education (CARE) Collaborative is a group of social justice-driven community members and academics conducting research that affirms the experiences of Two Spirit, trans, nonbinary (2STNB), gender-nonconforming, and gender diverse individuals. Through a critical lens, our work aims to meaningfully transform and advance the position of 2STNB and gender diverse issues within the field of psychology. Our research focuses on the pathways to wellbeing and healing for 2STNB people. We embrace empowerment, reflexivity, and liberation in our advocacy for and with 2STNB people.Trans CARE is a proud collaborator with the Wisconsin Transgender Health Coalition (WTHC). Trans CARE and WTHC consult with each other on ongoing research projects, dissemination of research findings to the community, and trainings. Our partnership uses true community-based participatory research methodology and is demonstrative of both groups’ commitment to improved healthcare for Two Spirit, trans, nonbinary, and gender-nonconforming people.
