In light of Trumps’ proposed cuts to arts programming, it is more critical than ever that we find creative ways to financially support arts organizations and grassroots organizing. At the same time, it’s imperative that we unite with all oppressed peoples, and reinvigorate a movement that stands for all. We must be careful to sustain ourselves and the movement while we organize against strategic and destructive attacks. As allies of queer and transgender people, especially queer and transgender people of color, it is up to us to do everything we can to fight for and with those most vulnerable in the LGBTQ+ community. As The Change Project gears up for four years of organizing, we need your help.
Rise Up America, The Change Project’s newest policy-based initiative, will help us to fight hate at the local and state level by telling stories and building coalitions. We need your help to continue our tireless fight against hate and intolerance!
Together, we will organize to defeat hate like never before, and we are glad to have you with us in this fight. Onward!
