MTPC 2012 Community Survey

Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition (MTPC) will be circulating our bi-annual community survey. MTPC last conducted this survey in 2009, and the needs of the community are changing, especially with the passing of Transgender Rights in employment, housing, credit, and public education.

The purpose of this survey is to find out the community’s needs and where the community believes our work should be focused. In general, we are looking for honest feedback about how MTPC is doing, what we are doing well and what we could do more or less of. If you find that this survey does not address a certain need you find important, please contact MTPC directly. The survey is completely anonymous and confidential. The responses will be used in such a manner that will improve MTPC and our work within and for the transgender communities in Massachusetts.
