- DYSC- a space for LGBT youth 13-22
- Latinxs Revolución- This new program has come about from the lack of resources and safe spaces for our Latino community. As Arkansas continues to grow in acceptance of LGBTQ humans, some of our own still face challenges every day. This group was created with the intent to provide resources and guide the Latino LGBTQ community in Arkansas. We aim to create a safe space where all intersecting identities of LGTBQ latinos are included and respected, and an integral part of the safe space
- Safe Schools- This program provides trainings for educators, administrators and school counselors on anti-bullying and to increase their cultural competency regarding the needs and concerns of LGBTQ students, same-sex couple parented families and LGBTQ co-workers. This program also serves as an advocate for students and families in the school systems.

The transgender community in Arkansas may be small, but our supporters are vast. It will be necessary to build a coalition with members of the greater LGBTQ community, supportive families, providers, allies, friends, community leaders, businesses, faith community members and organizations. The community is in extreme need of resources and infrastructure and it requires a team effort.
Transgender people often don’t get a seat at the table in decision making processes in Arkansas, and when they do, they are often invited to a table someone else set up. Let’s build a table together for the transgender community of Arkansas so more people can get a seat, have their voices heard, and issues addressed.
