Black Trans Advocacy Coalition (Executive Director)
Through his lived experiences as a Black Trans man, Carter Brown was compelled to found Black Transmen, Inc. to advocate for the empowerment of transgender people through community building and organizing to address the disparities faced by Black Trans people.
His work, along with BTMI’s subsidiary, Black Trans Advocacy Coalition (BTAC), is based in peacebuilding, community education, public policy initiatives, empowerment programs, and direct services.
Brown’s most recent accomplishments include celebrating the 8th year of the only National Black Trans Advocacy conference and testifying before U.S. Congress in support of the Equality Act, an amendment the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to include protections for transgender people.
