Los Angeles, CA
Director, Co-founder
She/Her Pronouns

Eli Erlick co-founded TSER in 2011 due to her experiences facing intersecting forms of violence in schools that lacked vital support for trans issues and communities. Coming out as trans and queer at age eight to a rural community, she has been directly involved in queer and trans advocacy since a young age. She is a former student media ambassador and a current National Advisory Council member for GLSEN and a former Youth Advisory Council member for The Trevor Project. She is was a Westly Foundation and Peace First fellow and has been recognized internationally by Teen Vogue, Refinery29, and numerous other publications for her organizing. Her work and writing has been featured in the New York Times, Time Magazine, and NPR among dozens of outlets. She believes transgender liberation is a process of collective action across communities.
