Ruby Jade Corado: Why she kicks ass
She is a founding member of the D.C. Trans Coalition and runs her own LGBT Latin@ organization, Latin@s En Accion. 
With a group of friends and activists she created and runs the group “Creando Espacios”, sponsored by La Clínica Del Pueblo, where for the past ten years, many transgender activists have learned advocacy, public speaking and outreach skills. She also created El Proyecto “Casa Ruby”, a home and work center for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people that are homeless and/or jobless because of being rejected by their families or by society. 
Ruby has collaborated with national organizations such as LLEGO, the National Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Organization, in which she worked to create the First Leadership Congress for Transgender Latin@s in Washington, D.C, and she collaborated in the First state wide transgender health needs assessment.
