Committees are one of the primary ways we (MTPC Steering Committee, members, and volunteers) do our activism. Each committee addresses a specific topic or area. Committee membership is open to all, except Steering, which requires prior involvement with MTPC.

Oversees the activities and long-term vision of MTPC. Lead or assist at fundraisers and act as MTPC ambassadors at public events. New members are nominated by current members or staff from among those already involved with the work of MTPC, so that their guidance is informed by familiarity with MTPC and demonstrated commitment to trans community. Appointments are made by the existing Steering Committee.
