Take Action and Get Involved–Our Communities Are Under Attack!

TDOR Siox Falls, SD

Our communities are under attack. With the recent anti-trans and anti-worker bill that was passed in North Carolina this week, the murder of Quartney Davia Dawsonn-Yochum, a transgender woman of color in Los Angeles, California (Quartney Davia Dawsonn-Yochum is the seventh reported trans woman to be murdered this year) and the continued discrimination and violent attacks against queer transgender and gender non conforming people of color across the country– we are under attack.

Recently, TJFP and the Transgender Law Center partnered to launch the National Training Institute for TGNC leaders who are working tirelessly to combat these attacks against our community. We encourage you learn more about the institute and find a grassroots trans-led trans justice group in TJFP’s directory and fight for trans justice in your local community.

This is the time to take action and get involved. Our communities need our support. Please help TJFP fund the trans justice movement by donating anything you can to our 2016 fundraising campaign.  Every dollar makes a difference. There really is no donation too small.

“The recent, tragic uptick in murders of trans women of color seems to be finally drawing the attention outside trans circles. Simply caring is sadly not enough, though. A Facebook status about how awful the violence is won’t actually make the world a better place. But there are real, practical actions you can take.”

Read more of what author and co-executive director of Feministing, Jos Truitt has to say in her article, Taking Action Against Anti-Trans Violence by Supporting Vital Services and Organizations.

Thanks Jos for encouraging people to support all of these critical groups and organizations as well as the Trans Justice Funding Project directory!
