Thanks to the dedication of our staff, the commitment of our Board of Governors, and your continued support, 2022 was another pivotal and impactful year. The Joint Center conducted critical research, provided in-depth analysis, shared policy recommendations, and convened with lawmakers, policy experts, and other stakeholders to advance Black Americans' political and economic needs. Our clear and intentional focus on the needs and concerns of Black Americans centers Black communities in policy debates, furthering our mission of creating more equitable and just economic and political outcomes for African Americans across the country. We have made great strides in each of our major program areas — Tech Policy, Workforce Policy, Economic Policy, Hill Diversity, and the Black Talent Initiative — which we are excited to share with you in this 2022 impact report.
The 2022 Annual Services Report culminates a year of struggle, resistance, wins, and loss, but certainly a lot of hope for our people. In this report, you will find some of the milestones we have taken to push trans-led organizations to have a voice and advance the leadership of trans people locally, nationally, and internationally. From our inception in 2009, we have grown tremendously and simultaneously have supported other Trans-led organizations in California through funding from the California Department of Public Health and the California Department of Social Services.Despite the challenges that we encountered in 2022, we as an organization have expanded our services, our team, and our work. We have become one of the biggest Trans led organizations in the country, employing more than 35 TGI-identified people. With the support of many of our partners, we have advocated and have our voices heard in different spaces that are not traditionally made for us. We have been able to assert ourselves on behalf of TGI people in these spaces and made sure that our voices were heard and policies were crafted and created to support the livelihood of all TGI people. It is because of the support of all of you that we have been able to do our work and assert ourselves as one of the most prominent Trans led organizations in the country.
