For ten years, the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) has been leading the fight in Washington, DC while also working in states around the country to advance equality for transgender people. The theme for this year’s 10th Anniversary Celebration is “Our Moment” because we are celebrating ten years of transgender progress and it is our moment to push for more.
