Event Details

We are pleased to partner with FCAA and others for two FCAA Connect briefings on funding for transgender communities. The first conversation – in partnership with Funders for Reproductive Equity, Women’s Funding Network, and Funders for LGBTQ Issues.

The resistance to recognizing transgender women as women is a reality within our larger culture. We will learn about some of the history of this resistance, and discuss how cisgender women in particular may knowingly, or unknowingly enable this resistance. 

This session will explore how this dynamic may play out in philanthropic settings. As some of the most marginalized women in the US, as well as prime targets of violence, we will explore how grantmaking institutions do or do not support Transgender women, both as a marginalized community but also as stakeholders within the feminist movement

Although this conversation will have a primary focus on Trans women of color, it will also be inclusive of everyone under a Trans and Gender Non-Conforming umbrella, including Trans men and nonbinary people, and how their gender experiences and sexual and reproductive health and justice needs are often invisible and ignored.  

Session Moderator: Kiyomi Fujikawa, Third Wave Fund 

Panelists: Surina Khan, Women’s Foundation of California; Ana Oliveira, New York Women’s Foundation; Tatyana Moaton, Envision Consulting; Bré Rivera, Black Trans Fund/Groundswell Fund; Aryah Lester, Transgender Strategy Center.

Please register for this important conversation. We also encourage you to submit questions within registration or via e-mail to [email protected]. Registration is limited to representatives of funding and philanthropy-serving organizations.  More information coming soon!
