Black trans people are among the most marginalized of marginalized Americans. But those closest to the nation’s most pressing problems are often able to craft innovative solutions.

Join award-winning journalist Imara Jones as she travels across the country to tell the stories of three Black trans leaders on the frontlines of change: housing advocate Kayla Gore; Breonna McCree, a champion for economic empowerment; and Oluchi Omeoga, who fights for the rights of migrants. Despite a record-breaking number of anti-trans bills passed in 2023, these Black trans people are addressing critical issues surrounding economic empowerment and human dignity with heart and vision.  

American Problems, Trans Solutions is a production of TransLash Media in association with The WNET Group’s Chasing the Dream initiative.

Major funding for Chasing the Dream is provided by The JPB Foundation with additional funding from Sue and Edgar Wachenheim III.
