Thank you for your #EspavoLove

Thank you to everyone who participated in our first Instagram campaign, #EspavoLove, as part of the #EspavoProject!

Espavo means, “Thank you for taking your power back.” We know that those of you who participated — by contributing a photo or quote, liking a post, “simply” following the campaign — could feel the love, healing, and power in the messages. Thank you.

We also know that those of you who forwarded posts, told your organizations about the project, and expanded the reach helped show trans, gender non-conforming, gender non-binary survivors and loved ones that you care. Thank you.

We had 21 submissions and grew our Instagram presence from almost 0 to 65 followers in just the span of a week!

The Espavo Project is an ongoing initiative of FORGE so if you missed this campaign, there will be others themed opportunities in the future, as well as photo shoots and art gallery exhibits across the country. Follow us on Instagram (@forge_forward) and look for other ways you can support yourself and support this work.
