Trans Leadership Connection, SNaP Co’s premier leadership development program was launched in 2015. TLC is designed to educate and empower members of Atlanta’s trans community to become leaders in ending the crisis of mass criminalization, especially as it impacts TLGB communities, and to become advocates for the community based Pre- Arrest Diversion initiative that diverts people away from the criminal legal system and instead offers life changing social services. The 2015 internship team consisted of five beautiful and brilliant trans people who were all chosen because of their desire to learn, grow and heal, and because of their unwavering passion, love, and commitment to the trans community.
