Webinar: Supporting Global Trans Communities During COVID-19
Monday, June 15th
10 am EDT/ 4 pm CEST/ 5 pm EAT
The pandemic and surrounding politics are on track to have devastating effects on marginalized LGBTI communities, and trans communities in particular. Trans-led groups have already reported governments using COVID-19 to enact transphobic laws and/or repress trans communities; trans people have been excluded from receiving emergency aid; and trans-led movements have seen funders pull back and or pause planned grants.
Join the Global Philanthropy Project’s Trans and Intersex Working Group and the International Trans Fund for a grantmaker webinar on the reality and impact of COVID-19 for trans movements, and a discussion on how funders can respond.
The webinar will provide funders with insights about how COVID-19 is impacting trans-led groups across global regions, and offer space to strategize together about effective responses in the short, medium, and long term.
