WHAT IS A TiNaS KIT?
TiNaS kits are a protection pouch containing 1 pepper spray, 1 self-defense keychain, 1 $25 Uber Card, 2 Drink Test Cards, 1 dental dam, 1-2 Latex-free condom(s), 2 latex condoms, 1 portable phone charger, and 1 cloth mask.
They are FREE to obtain for Black Trans Women, Femmes, and Non-Binary people.
This is a project to provide self-defense and safety tools and to Black Trans Women, Femmes, and Non-Binary individuals in response to the continual violence that occurs to our communities.
I'M A BLACK GENDER DIVERSE PERSON, HOW CAN I GET A TiNaS KIT?
If you are in the greater Seattle area, you can pick up a kit at Repair Revolution, Gay City: Seattle's LGBTQ Center, and Open Books. Or if you are in other areas and don't have access to these places, you can request a TiNaS kit to be shipped to you or to a UPS store near you by filling out the form to the right.

WHY ARE THESE KITS FREE FOR BLACK TRANS WOMEN, FEMMES, AND NON-BINARY PEOPLE?
Mirroring the mutual aid efforts of communities across the country and globally, while putting Black Trans Women, Femmes, and Non-Binary Individuals first in accessing self-defense, we change and challenge the dynamics of the trickle-down effects of oppression, which normally, severely impact Black Trans Women, Femmes, and Non-Binary People.
