Trans Lifeline

A nonprofit organization

100% complete

$175,000 Goal

Trans Lifeline unequivocally supports the organizing, protests, and leadership of Black people and movements fighting for justice.  There are important frontline demands for resources right now, and we must keep supporting Black movements for liberation. 

That’s why we're asking you to #DoubleDownOnTransFutures and match your gift to us with a gift to a Black trans-led organization. 

Who We Are:

Trans Lifeline is a trans-led organization that connects trans people to the community, support, and resources they need to survive and thrive. Our Hotline is the only peer-support service that operates across the U.S. and Canada where all the operators are trans. We are also unique in that we never ask the police to intervene in the lives of our callers unless the caller asks us to. Of course, we know that some problems can't be solved by emotional support alone. That's why our Microgrants department gives trans people money to legally change their name and/or gender alongside specialized support for trans people who are incarcerated or detained.

June 2020 is milestone month for Trans Lifeline: we're prioritizing Black, Indigenous, and People of Color in our Microgrants program and we're launching Spanish-language services on our Hotline. You can help our programs expand this Give Out Day by making a gift of $10+ or registering to fundraise on our behalf. The majority of our funding comes from grassroots donations and we'd be honored to have you join the ranks of over 20,000 donors who make our work possible.

With your support, we hope to bring home a $10,000 prize grant that will help us answer nearly 400 calls or give 50 trans people money to update their ID.
