United Methodist Alliance for Transgender Inclusion

United Methodist Alliance for Transgender Inclusion

UMATI exists to challenge The United Methodist Church (UMC) to live into its visionary policy of being a Church free from gender discrimination at every level, equipping and empowering people to transform our church and society into places that celebrate gender diversity.

Our work takes the form of three interrelated ministries:

  • Nurture: Offer support, fellowship, and connections to transgender individuals and their families throughout the UMC.
  • Outreach: Provide tools, resources, and strategies to work toward the full inclusion of transgender people in the church and society.
  • Witness: Provide a public witness in support of transgender people in local congregations, at UMC Conferences, and in society.

To get involved with UMATI, join our active Facebook group.
