Event Details

How has a global health pandemic and the Black Lives Matter racial justice uprisings affected LGBTQ communities in California? How are LGBTQ communities of color, especially transgender women of color, impacted, and how can philanthropy reach them as some of California’s most impacted by discrimination, violence, homeless, lack of health care access, and poverty? Learn from funders who are investing in LGBTQ communities and LGBTQ-serving nonprofits dealing with front-line challenges using holistic and intersectional approaches. This panel will address the question of what does “funding intersectionally” look like –and how can it be done effectively at this historic moment –when including the diverse LGBTQ population in our understanding of what is “intersectional”?

Join us:

Hear from LGBTQ activists of color working on the front lines and funders supporting them, to learn how philanthropy as a whole can better support their efforts. In their stories, you’ll hear about partnerships between funders and transgender women of color-led groups that have been successful in supporting them as they confront multiple forms of discrimination and violence. These partnerships are now all the more urgent, and this panel will help you find opportunities that will help make your funding more impactful and inclusive.
