In Support of Our Transgender Members, Youth, and their Families


SCBWI strives to provide a safe space for all creators of content for children. Today, we specifically choose to unequivocally acknowledge that trans youth, their families, and trans creators are an important part of our organization whose stories must be told.

We choose to support your truth. As a nonprofit that supports creative people everywhere, we value the contributions that trans people have added to the story of our human family everywhere around the world.

Your stories matter. You matter to us. As always, SCBWI welcomes you.
