Trans and Non-binary Advocacy Coalition

Mission Statement

Trans and Nonbinary Advocacy Coalition (TANAC) is a trans- and non-binary-led group of students, staff, and faculty at UCSC. Together, we build sustained connections to address the needs of trans and nonbinary people and positively transform our experiences across campus. Our work is grounded in intersectionality, solidarity, and love.

What We Do

TANAC formed in Winter 2019 and has met monthly to discuss and address ongoing issues related to trans and nonbinary people’s experiences on campus. We have worked on issues such as the autonomy and rights of those in trans-inclusive housing, access to trans mental and physical healthcare, transparency around name and pronoun documentation in campus systems, and more.
