The organization started out as a peer support group for trans women of color (TWOC) to come together and share their narratives. As a result, TAKE soon discovered that the organization needed to be more than a support group. There was organizing that needed to be done to break down barriers and to set standards within the Birmingham community for trans-related issues. The group began to focus on issues such as discrimination in the workplace, housing advocacy, support for sex workers, providing trans-friendly services, and working to alleviate the many other barriers that TPOC face that no one else was talking about.
