As we prepare for our community-led grantmaking weekend, we’ve been keeping in our hearts the amazing trans justice activists and organizers who are fiercely dedicated to social justice. From the activists protesting the hateful anti-trans bills popping up across the country to the trans-led support groups in small towns keeping each other safe and healthy–we are deeply grateful for the movement.
Over the past year, TJFP has been on our “From the Ground to the Sky” listening tour, sitting with trans activists and organizers to learn more about their important work. This past winter, we had the pleasure of hearing from Renae Gray, a Native American trans activist from Gallup, NM. Her story inspires us to continue to work together as a movement for trans justice, because “we shouldn’t have to go through these challenges alone.”
