Event Details

A fair and just world is one where those closest to and most impacted by harm are thriving and leading solutions for social, economic, and political change, and when it comes to any movement for liberation, trans women of color have been the vanguards. However, even in this particular moment of mainstream visibility for the trans community, the reality is that Black and brown trans communities are still under-resourced and their leadership is going unrecognized. How can Bay Area funders support trans leadership that is at the forefront of creating safety and bringing dignity to vulnerable communities?

Join us for a lively conversation with some of the Bay Area’s trailblazing trans leaders who are responding to the urgent needs of transgender, gender non-conforming, and nonbinary communities while centering the leadership of Black, Indigenous, and trans women and femmes of color. This is an opportunity for funders to learn more about the intersections of racial, economic, and gender justice, and about the ways in which trans folks are organizing locally to secure housing and addressing houselessness, leading anti-violence and decriminalization efforts, building trans-led organizations and infrastructure, addressing anti-trans bills targeting trans youth, and more. We will also hear from funder peers who have set a precedent for the ways in which the philanthropic community can strengthen the support of our trans leaders.

Target Audience

This program is open to NCG members, nonmember funders, co-sponsors, and partners.
