A4TE is proud to endorse candidates who champion trans rights and equality. We invite individuals running for office to apply for our endorsement through our Solicitud de respaldo. Our endorsement process is designed to identify and support candidates who are committed to advancing the rights and visibility of the trans community. By endorsing candidates, we amplify the voices that best represent our communities and ensure that trans rights are front and center in politics. 

Our endorsed candidates will receive support in many ways, including one-on-one coaching, contributions, using our name on printed materials, and more.

Compromiso político

A4TE is deeply engaged in building and maintaining solid political relations to advance our mission of trans rights and equality. Our efforts include active participation in major political events and strategic partnerships with leading LGBTQ political organizations.

We play a significant role in leading trans-specific messaging and working within major political organizations. We ensure that trans issues are represented and prioritized at the highest levels of political power. 

Out for Biden

A4TE proudly supports the "Out for Biden" campaign, a coalition effort to mobilize LGBTQ voters to support President Biden. Our historic joint endorsement with organizations such as HRC PAC and Equality PAC highlights the administration's contributions and commitment to the transgender community.
