cathykapuaTJFP is so excited to introduce the first of our six Community Grantmaking Fellows, Cathy Kapua!

Cathy Kapua hails from O`ahu, Hawaii and has worked with the transgender community since 2003. Cathy started as a Peer Educator and Employment Specialist at a transgender social service organization called Kulia Na Mamo. She then moved on to become an HIV Prevention Specialist at the Life Foundation working with transgender women who engage in survival sex work. Cathy has since worked on several federally funded projects specific for the transgender community and has provided culturally competency trainings to medical service providers in an effort of raising awareness of the needs of the transgender community in Hawaii. Cathy is currently the Kuaana Project Coordinator at the Life Foundation offering a variety of social services to the Native Hawaiian, Asian, and Pacific Island transcommunity by utilizing peers to empower others within the transgender community. Being a role model for the young transgender community in Hawai`i drives Cathy’s passion to continue her advocacy within the healthcare and social service fields.

“I so appreciate the vision of the Trans Justice Funding Project. The idea that small grassroots organizations finally has someone who hears and understands us…”–TJFP Grantee

TJFP is about investing in trans communities making decisions by and for ourselves. Over the last four years, we’ve received 486 applications, and raised and given away over 315 grants totaling more than $800,000 to trans-led trans justice groups through our community-led process.

Find out if your group is eligible to apply for a grant here and check out TJFP’s directory of trans-led trans justice groups that have applied in the past. There is so much brilliance in our communities and we’re here to help support the growth and sustainability of our trans justice movement. And we understand that the work can take many shapes and often looks different across regions.

We look forward to your application and to learning more about how you define trans justice! Thank you for all that you do to keep our communities safe and thriving.

The 2017 grant application deadline is tomorrow, February 15th, 2017 at midnight Eastern Standard Time.
