What is the Transgender Encounter Cards Project?
The Transgender Encounter Cards Project (TEP) is a worldwide *safe and anonymous* action movement. With each "encounter" between transgender people and the rest of society, we begin to transform the thinking of many people about who we are and what our place is in the world. We begin to assert our human-ness and our harmlessness. The Transgender Encounter Cards Project aims to change the world, one "trans encounter" at a time. If you are transgender, an ally, or some other relation to a transgender person, you can make your presence known, safely and anonymously by supporting the people you know in the transgender community by using Transgender Encounter Project cards! Just leave them behind at stores, human services, cafes, restaurants, buses, etc. , just dropping them wherever you hang out or do business at.
There are 2 options for being involved in TEP.
1. Create your OWN Transgender Encounter cards! Feel free to check out our designs to see examples of what you can do. Please add the hashtag #transencounter to the back of your cards and start leaving them where you can.
2. For those that do not have the time, eneregy or inclination to design and print their own, we are offering several designs and a custom option that you can purchase at a reasonable cost.

The TEP Founder's Endorsement
As a safe and anonymous action movement, The Transgender Encounter Project is an important emerging agency for change. In order for it to be effective, whoever stewards the Project must be intimate with the issues facing the Transgender and Allied communities. Debbie Brandt is an active voice in the community. She herself is an Ally and her husband is a Transgender man with health challenges, so Debbie knows, very well, what obstacles can be faced by Transgender people seeking to live complete, safe, fulfilling lives in our modern world. I have known her to be passionate in her advocacy and trust her to expand the reach and effectiveness of The Transgender Encounter Project; helping to increase our visibility and building bridges of understanding between Transgender people and the rest of society. Debbie Brandt has my full endorsement and support, as she represents the TEP, moving forward.
