As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to upend daily life and a looming economic downturn seems increasingly likely, how can funders best support trans communities? In what ways can funders connect their work to respond to the pandemic with longer-term efforts to support trans communities? Join us for a funder only webinar spotlighting both an emerging rapid response fund led by trans grantmakers and other opportunities to support the critical work of trans leaders on the frontlines.

This briefing will center the voices of a community that has long been negatively affected by society’s failure to provide basic needs like housing, employment, safety, and health care. Yet at the same time, trans-led groups and organizations have a legacy of leading with innovative strategies in times of crisis. Join us to learn about emerging efforts to address the impact of both the COVID-19 pandemic and any potential economic downturn resulting from efforts to contain it on trans communities.
Please note: This briefing is open to funders only. However, unlike most Funders for LGBTQ Issues programming, this briefing will include a specific invitation to support collaborative efforts among our members to support trans-led work in this time of crisis.
