Running for Trans Lifeline

BENEFITING: Trans Lifeline

EVENT: 2015 TCS New York City Marathon

EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2015

Jacob Lau

THE STORY:

While there are many amazing non-profits supporting trans people in various ways (see the Sylvia Rivera Law Project, Gender Justice Los Angeles and the TransJustice Project of the Audre Lorde Project), I am fundraising for the Trans Lifeline, the only hotline for transgender and gender nonconforming people in crisis run by trans and gender nonconforming people. Trans Lifeline, which recently achieved non-profit status, was started by a trans woman after her own difficult experiences accessing suicide prevention care as a trans woman. While there are other free LGBT hotlines for suicidal youth, none are specifically targeted for trans and gender nonconforming people of all ages and run by trans and gender nonconforming people. I am hoping to raise $2,000 for Trans Lifeline before the NYC Marathon in early November. Please consider donating, any and all donations are greatly appreciated! I encourage you to read more about Trans Lifeline using the following link: http://www.translifeline.org/
