It's #TransgenderAwarenessWeek and while it's totes cool to be an ally & share blog posts, there are some other things that we can all do help:

Donations/Volunteer:

ACLU: They're dope AF and are fighting the good fight. They're always looking for volunteers and donations so they can continue kicking ass. You can do a monthly donation program (which is what I'm trying to work up to) or one-offs whenever you can.
Silvia Rivera Law Project: SRLP busts its butt to raise awareness and represent the political voices of low-income ppl and POCs who trans, intersex or gender non-confirming. Super cool peeps.
Hetrick-Martin Institute: safe space for LGTBQ+ people aged 13-24 and their families. They have a location in the East Village as well as New Jersey.
Anti-Violence Project: This organization empowers queer, trans, and HIV-affected people and seeks to raise awareness of violence against them and put an end to it. They also provide survivor support, such as counseling.

Trans Relief Project: the election was cray and as a result, they received so many donations that they had to put a pause on donations in order to improve their infrastructure and establish 501(c)3 status. In the meantime, we can all follow them on social media and stay up to date in their work.
Events this wk:
