2017 Fall Newsletter: TJFP is sending you love

TJFP is sending you love.

“There are grassroots groups around the world that are strategic, demanding, and unapologetically queer and trans. Some of these groups are a culmination of people who made the decision long ago to never be afraid, and they have never turned back. These groups give me hope in my most hopeless moments and they desperately need our support for survival.”

Hello friends and community,

You may have noticed that the calendar year is nearly coming to a close. This past year our communities spirits are being tested and asked to keep showing up to fight against white supremacy, denial of climate change, removal of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), discrimination against trans and gender non-conforming people, the continued violence against trans women of color, and we know there’s still more to come.

As a community-led funding project, our role is to move money to trans-led grassroots social justice across the country. This year, because of many of you, we were able to move half a million to groups on the ground organizing and fighting for our collective liberation and justice. Whether you are an organizer, donor, artist, activist, or volunteer–keep doing your thing!

We are so much stronger when we move forward together. We are so incredibly thankful to each of you, for your efforts, your brilliance, and your resistance.

With so much love and gratitude,

Gabriel Foster

Here’s where you can find us over the next month–come say hi!
