Emergency Relief For Black Trans Women In Charlotte
Last week, we learned that two of our Black transgender sisters in the Charlotte area lost their lives to acts of violence within just days of each other. These women are the latest victims of horrific anti-transgender attacks that are positioning 2021 to become by far, the deadliest year on record for the transgender community. Three trans women have been murdered this year in North Carolina alone.
With Republican legislators targeting us in the halls of power and our transgender community increasingly unsafe in public, we all need to come together and protect those who need it most.
Along with Charlotte Pride, Campaign for Southern Equality, and Transcend Charlotte, we’ve committed $10,000 to provide immediate emergency relief to Black trans women in Charlotte.
This money will go directly towards the black trans community and programs and organizations working to provide housing for transgender folks.
We all must step up right now to help support the most vulnerable members of our communities while they are under direct attack. Will you join us in this fight?
The rising ride of white supremacy has emboldened new levels of hate in our streets, and we need you to join us in supporting our trans family when they need it most.
Thank you for your support.
