TransPonder Mission & Vision


TransPonder is a transgender-founded and led nonprofit based in Eugene, Oregon providing support, resources, and education for the transgender and gender-diverse community and our allies.

Our mission is to foster healthy communities through wellness programs; support meetings, socials, and special events; trans-inclusive resources; and training and consultation services to improve the lives and outcomes of LGBTQIA2S people, emphasizing trans and gender-diverse Oregonians.


TransPonder’s vision and commitment is to address root causes of discrimination within and outside transgender, gender-diverse, intersex, lesbian, gay, bisexual, asexual, and queer communities through an intersectional social justice lens.


We’re thankful for our transcestors who helped pioneer queer liberation, with special thanks to Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera, and for people who have inspired us to change and grow, including Maya Angelou, James Baldwin, and Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw.
