Funding LGBTQ Issues in the Trump EraThis event is only for grantmakers.

Funders for LGBTQ Issues
The election of Donald Trump creates a challenging context for all those funding LGBTQ rights and other issues of social justice. President-elect Trump has promised to reverse many of President Obama’s executive orders that protected the rights of LGBTQ people and to appoint conservative Supreme Court Justices who would roll back progress on LGBTQ rights and reproductive justice. His Vice President, Mike Pence, implemented one of the nation’s most anti-LGBTQ laws, using religious freedom as a smokescreen to allow people and businesses to discriminate against LGBTQ people. Trump’s likely top appointees are a Who’s Who of politicians who have taken stark stances against LGBTQ rights, immigrant rights, and civil liberties. The ascendance of such an extreme regime at the federal level may also have ripple effects, such as another wave of extreme anti-LGBTQ bills at the state level and a rise in violence against LGBTQ communities.
