Mission and Overview
The Southern Arizona Gender Alliance, Inc. (SAGA) provides educational, support, outreach, and other programs for transgender, transsexual, and gender-variant people, as well as families, allies, service providers, employers, and others.
Since our founding in 1998, SAGA has sought to bring about a change in attitudes and perceptions of, as well as by, transgender people. SAGA has delivered scores of public information panels and forums, established a network of supporting organizations throughout Tucson’s human services community as well as civil rights and social justice organizations nationwide, and developed and presented unique educational symposiums for service providers, employers, and the public. We have a reputation for consistent success and commitment, and we have become the primary resource on transgender issues in the greater Southwest region.
