The TransLatina Coalition, a national transgender advocacy group, has started its first Florida chapter in Fort Lauderdale.
The group plans to provide a wide range of services for the transgender community, including a safe space for trans women who are victims of domestic violence.
She said it's important to have transgender-led organizations.
"There's a lot of misunderstanding in our community," she said. "They don’t understand what are our needs.
Some of those needs are access to knowledgeable healthcare providers and transgender inclusion in the workplace.
Lint is also helping to build other TransLatina chapters in the Southeast including in Georgia, North Carolina and Puerto Rico.
