For Immediate Release: March 14, 2023

In the midst of rampant attacks on transgender community members’ livelihoods and access to healthcare, Transgender Law Center is announcing the launch of a digital initiative: FundMe Fridays.

FundMe Fridays is a weekly campaign that will engage online communities in conversation about mutual aid while encouraging people to donate directly to transgender people. Transgender Law Center anticipates individuals to seek support for gender-affirming surgery, healthcare, food, housing, and more.

As states continue to criminalize trans people and their caregivers simply for seeking the resources that all people need to live, this initiative further sheds light on the shortcomings of our governments and institutions.

Fundraisers will primarily be selected on a “first come/first serve” basis, with priority going to BIPOC submitters.
