About Our Organization

What organization is behind Transfaith?

Transfaith is a trademark of the Interfaith Working Group (IWG). IWG is the non-profit organization behind Transfaith Online and all of our Transfaith programming.

  • Our board of directors takes overall responsibility for the health and well-being of the organization. 

  • Chris Paige is the founder of Transfaith Online and was hired as executive director of IWG beginning January 1, 2012.

  • Louis Mitchell became executive director in 2018, when Chris asked to step down to the role of Operations Director.

  • Chris and Louis are considered co-founders of Transfaith due to the way they partnered in the process of bringing IWG and Transfaith Online together to emerge as a new organization.

  • Volunteers fulfill many roles in our work.

  • We welcome your financial support for this important work!

IWG had a previous life advocating for separation of church and state, reproductive freedom and rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people, but shifted to focus on transgender communities in 2007.
