TreShaun Pate joined the ACLU of Texas in August of 2019 as the volunteer coordinator in the Dallas area. Prior to his work with the ACLU, he volunteered heavily with the Black Trans Advocacy Coalition where he is currently the conference coordinator/conference program chair. It was after attending his first BTAC conference in 2013 that he wanted to step up from a general volunteer and do more work centering the empowerment of his fellow Black trans people.

TreShaun is an advocate through education and empowerment and wants to help create equitable policies and legislation in the state of Texas. He is most passionate about LGBTQ issues and criminal justice reform. In his spare time, he loves to ride his skateboard, box, and go on camping trips where he can fish and enjoy nature.
