Hate makes it worse
Members of the trans, intersex, and genderqueer community can lose everything in disasters, experiencing extreme difficulties in disaster situations. Making it worse, attacks by lawmakers and community leaders against trans people have resulted in an environment of heightened hostility.
You can make it better
Recovery funds are used to help our historically underserved community recover from catastrophic events. Funds have already helped disaster victims recover from hurricanes, floods, freezes, earthquakes, communicable diseases and fires throughout the Americas. Your support makes this possible.
Who: Transgender Foundation of America
Organized in 1998, the Transgender Foundation of America (TFA) is a Houston-based grassroots nonprofit organization that obtained its 501c3 nonprofit status (EIN: 76-0670632) in 2001. TFA was brought into existence through the hard work and support of its parent organization, the Gulf Coast Transgender Community (GCTC), which traces its roots back to 1965. In addition to TFA, GCTC was instrumental in organizing pioneering organizations like the Texas Association for Transsexual Support and historic events such as the International Conference on Transgender Law and Employment Policy. GCTC’s spirit lives on in the TFA mission of improving the quality of life for transgender people.
