It all started with four friends and an idea. After the fallout of the 2016 U.S. Presidential election we became acutely aware that the transgender and gender non-conforming communities would need our support more than ever to mitigate safety risks and potential civil rights abuses. Knowing that an updated passport would be a way to empower trans and GNC individuals, the four of us set to work collecting donations. The goal: help as many trans and GNC people as possible get updated U.S. identification – passports specifically – before the regulations surrounding those rules potentially changed. Over the course of a weekend the Trans Relief Project was born. We could not have expected the outpouring of responses from around the globe. Now we are riding the wave of momentum as long as we can, to help as many as we can.
Stay safe, and take care of each other.
