Crimes against trans, gender expansive and gay and lesbian people regularly go un-investigated and un-prosecuted in the Northern Triangle of Central America. Regional legal systems allow a human rights organization such as Cristosal to take on the role of prosecutor on behalf of victims and survivors who choose to pursue justice.

Your support for Cristosal's TransLives Project makes you part of a gender diverse transnational team standing with trans, non-binary and LGBTIQ+ individuals and communities in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador in the face of wave after wave of brutal killings and targeted violence.

Together we can:

Partner with LGBTIQ+ community organizations to identify and accompany victims of targeted violence

Employ cutting-edge forensic techniques to gather evidence 

Provide legal representation for victims and survivors to seek justice 

Amplify the voices of trans people through creative communications on social and traditional media platforms

Build a gender diverse pipeline of human rights professionals in the Northern Triangle of Central America


Victims, survivors and investigators particularly need your support to allow for safe travel between the often remote and insecure areas where hate crimes occur and the capital cities where Cristosal's offices and the offices of governmental and international human rights authorities are located.
