Trans women of color are magical, powerful, skilled and wise, yet there is still no international network for us. This network gathering will change that.
We still have $13,978 to meet our fundraising goal and just over two weeks. Please help us meet this goal. In organizing this network gathering, it’s been clear to me why this is so historic and important, why I’ve never heard of a gathering like this before (and please correct me if I’m wrong about that), it’s because so many trans women of color are struggling with multiple oppressions. The coordinators of this gathering are all making an intense personal effort in difficult times to make this happen. We realize that this won’t happen unless we can fund most of the travel costs for participants in this gathering.
If you believe that trans women of color and non-binary trans feminine people of colour as well, which includes, but isn’t limited to, people of colour who identify as bakla, hijra, fa’fafine, third gender, genderqueer, should have a day to meet each other face to face and imagine our collective futures, then please donate, ask your friends to donate, and help us spread the word.
If you believe in the visionary politics of the Allied Media Conference that starts by listening, proceeds by assuming our power instead of our powerlessless and creates a space for imagining the future, then ask yourself who gets to imagine the future and why, and help us bring more trans women of color into the conversation.
And lastly, if you want to help us build a network of connected trans women of color who will work for all oppressed people’s liberation by working for their own, then help make that network a reality by donating, asking your friends and organizations to donate and spreading the word everywhere!
