From North Carolina to New York City,thousands of people have already evacuated their homes to escape Hurricane Irene’s path. Among them are transgender people who, like others, don’t have anywhere else to turn to except for evacuation shelters.

Considering the unique difficulties transgender evacuees encounter, NCTE, Lambda Legal, and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force have issued these simple guidelines to assist shelters in making their spaces safe for transgender people.

Download the resource and share it with evacuation shelters in your area.

NCTE has also created a Hurricane Preparedness Kit for transgender individuals who are displaced by storms. This resource includes information about what to do when preparing for a storm, and what to bring if you are evacuated.

If you are facing harassment or discrimination in emergency shelters and other evacuation programs because of your transgender status, please call the Lambda Legal Toll-Free National Help Desk at 866-542-8336. To file a discrimination complaint with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Office of Equal Rights, call 202-646-3535.
