Speaking in Case Studies of Collaborative Models at 9:45 am for the Ignited Impact track.
Ashley Mayfaire’s passion for community organizing and social justice issues has led to their current role in non-profit management. After experiencing firsthand the barriers that their husband, Morgan, faced during his gender transition from female to male, Ashley and Morgan co-founded TransSOCIAL, Inc. to build a network of resources and support for the Trans community. Ashley frequently speaks on educational panels and is always creating new curriculum for TransSOCIAL’s TLGBQ+ Cultural Competency Training for businesses, healthcare providers and universities, making sure that they are compliant with federal non-discrimination guidelines and creating safer and affirming spaces for Trans people to access care and public accommodations. They utilize their platform to educate and engage the community in HIV prevention and treatment efforts through their participation in the South Florida AIDS Network as ARCH Broward Committee Chair and have consulted for multiple research projects and reports on HIV in the Trans community. They also serve on the Board of Pride Fort Lauderdale, spearheading the creation of South Florida’s first Trans Pride celebration in 2018.
