Event Details

This event will take place at the EPIP National Conference in Detroit July 30th – August 1st. You must be registered for the conference to attend.

Transgender women and gender non-conforming (GNC) sex workers of color face extraordinary levels of violence and marginalization, borne from intersecting forces of sexism, racism and transphobia. Despite this, they are often excluded from conversations among funders because their experiences and politics are deemed unpalatable to cisgender audiences. Nonetheless, they are implementing their own strategies to support and protect each other, largely without support from foundations. This session will educate grantmakers on innovative ways to partner with and support frontline leaders of color from the trans women and GNC sex worker communities. This session is co-sponsored by the Pride Foundation and Funders for LGBTQ Issues.
