. . . A day of glitter, love and donations for non-profits.  We’d love you to join our giving party on Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2019.

Who: You! A Hero for Trans/Non-binary Issues

What: Giving Tuesday, a national celebration of giving to non-profits

Where: Online at our Facebook #Giving Tuesday Portal (or via secure Paypal)

When: Tuesday, December 3, 2019(But hey, it’s a giving party – we welcome your glitter any day of the year!)

Why: Trans/non-binary communities have felt the devastating impact of federal, state, and other governmental rollbacks of vital safety, health, and human rights protections. Trans/non-binary people have also experienced increases in violence, bias, slurs, and hardships. We know it takes a village of dedicated people continually working to ensure that trans/non-binary survivors of sexual assault, intimate partner violence, bias, and other forms of harm are treated with dignity and respect and receive quality, competent services from the providers they work with.
