The Black Trans Travel Fund | Just Ship It | June 26, 2020
The Black Trans Travel Fund is a mutual-aid based organization committed to uplifting the narratives and supporting the livelihoods of Black trans women. Launched in June of 2019, BTTF was developed for the purpose of providing Black transgender women with the financial resources needed to be able to self-determine and access safer alternatives to travel, where women feel less likely to experience verbal harassment or physical harm. We are proud to have already redistributed over $60,000 to Black trans women in need!
BTTF was created out of direct response to the relentless and unacceptable violence Black transgender women across the country have been continuously experiencing.
We are currently providing our service to Black trans women in New York state as well as and New Jersey state, and will be working to expand our efforts to other states soon!
This is a direct call to action for allies to be able to leverage their resources and make a tangible difference in the lives of Black trans women.
