Announcing TJFP’s 2020 Grantees!

We are pleased to announce that our 2020 grantmaking team moved over ONE MILLION DOLLARS to 261 grassroots trans-led groups around the country!

TJFP is so grateful for this year’s team and for the time, energy, and heart that was poured into every part of this grantmaking process. Each year we feel overwhelmed by the support of our friends and amazing community who helped make this happen– from outreach, volunteering, coordinating food delivery, taking notes, and donating or sharing our fundraiser which helped us reach and exceed our 80k fundraising goal!

Each year our community grantmaking panel reads and reviews every application that is submitted, and together they are tasked with making some very tough funding decisions. The TJFP fellows do this work with heart, experience, and generosity, all while also tending to their own work and lives as trans justice activists and organizers. Each fellow reviews applications using an intersectional lens, paying close attention to where resources are being redistributed geographically, and doing this with no strings attached, truly trusting that TJFP grantees know what’s best for their own communities. 

It’s because of these brilliant community grantmaking Fellows, as well as our amazing TJFP coordinating team and facilitators, that we are able to get this done each year. And we absolutely  wouldn’t be able to move as much money to the hundreds of incredible grassroots trans justice groups without our amazing friends, family, donors, volunteers, applicants, and grantees! 

As always, we are inspired by each and every application that was submitted. Again, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for honoring the legacy and efforts of our trans justice movements.  Our grantmaking process is always a labor of love rooted in trusting and believing in trans leadership and it is forever an honor to do this with so many of you! 

We encourage you to check out TJFP’s 2020 grantees, share their work, or donate to them directly!

The 2019 TJFP Annual Report is Out!

“The word legacy keeps coming into my head. We’re a cohort within this legacy of trans people who have made these funding decisions; everybody who applies to TJFP is entering into this legacy; and TJFP is leaving a legacy of how to do this work. There’s a need for doing funding in ways that center community needs, and I think TJFP does that really well.” – “Matters of the Heart in a Movement,” Micky Bradford, 2019 TJFP Fellow, TJFP 2019 Annual Report

Dear Friends, family and community,

As 2020 unfolds and we approach our eighth year of grantmaking, TJFP is more than ever before committed to supporting and uplifting the liberatory work of our trans justice community. In 2019, we were able to move $750,000 to 186 grassroots trans-led groups around the country!

And we’ve released our stunning, 2019 annual report and for the first time, we’ve included a copy of our application and a highlight about each and every one of the 186 trans-led grassroots groups that received a grant in 2019. Inside this gorgeous cover you’ll find words from TJFP staff and friends, powerful conversations with our 2019 grantmaking fellows, and so much more. We hope you’ll find it to be an enlightening and empowering resource!

Thank you so much for being a part of the TJFP community. Thank you to all of the amazing trans-led groups organizing around the country, our donors who provide unwavering support, the world’s best volunteers, cheerleaders, friends, and family! We need each and every one of you to continue to believe in grassroots trans justice.

We’re here because of you. Thank you for trusting and supporting trans leadership alongside us!

More than Magic: Seven Years of Funding Trans Justice

TJFP is a small funding project built and powered by a lot of community love, sweat, and tears. And yes, there is magic in this work, but what really gets us going each and every day is YOU–our beloved and powerful grantees and applicants, donors, staff, volunteers, family, and friends.

“Our fight and our resilience is a testimony that it gets better, not because we pray it so, but because we fight like hell to make it so!” —Everette Renee Thompson, 2018 Community Grantmaking Fellow

Over the years we’ve had the pleasure of working with 42 of the most brilliant trans justice activists and organizers around the country as part of our annual grantmaking panels. We’ve received 1,118 applications from some of the most radical and visionary grassroots, trans-led groups creating spaces and systems of care for our community.

Please enjoy this video we created to share some of the behind the scenes magic with you. You may even see some familiar faces!

Here’s to seven years of trans leadership and justice in action! We can’t do this work without you, so wherever you are–thank you for being part of the magic and brilliance of our trans justice movements.

Through SFQP, she explores the nuanced intersections of queer performance art, installation, and film.

Micky has organized trans communities across the South as the 1st lead of the TLC@SONG program, where she co-organized against HB2 in NC, held a TGNC leadership convening in Nashville, TN, and organized a listening tour across the region. Currently, Micky works as the “Organizing Program Associate” for the Transgender Law Center, serves on committees funding trans-lead movement work, and trains organizations with the SUSTAIN Wellbeing COMPASS Center.

Micky is a proud member of the Pioneering House of Ultra Omni, member of Southerners On New Ground, graduate of the 2017 Sojourner Truth Leadership Circle, and 2018 Atlanta Pride Grand Marshal.

Visibility and Self Care PSA with Lachlan Watson!

“If you don’t know Lachlan Watson yet, it’s time to start paying attention, because the 18-year-old actor is on the brink of their biggest year yet. Watson, who plays Theo on Netflix’s teen drama Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, just partnered with Unilever for the brand’s latest initiative, United We Stand. The campaign pairs six grassroots, non-governmental organizations with LGBTQ+ voices and allies to raise a
wareness about the lack of accessibility of beauty products in the queer community.”

A huge thank you Tourmaline for helping make this opportunity happen and for filming such beautiful PSA stories! We’re so honored you chose us! And to Lachlan Watson and Schmidt’s Naturals, a super huge thanks you for partnering with us and supporting the work of TJFP!
