Donations to the Lavender Rights Project support queer and trans community members across the state of Washington. By investing in the ability for LGBTQ community members to protect, assert, and fight for their legal rights, we all come closer to true self-determination, autonomy, and resilience.

The Okra Project is a 100% grassroots, organizer-led initiative that seeks to address the global crisis faced by Black Trans people by bringing home cooked, healthy, and culturally specific meals and resources to Black Trans People wherever we can reach them. Black Diasporic cooking traditions often use the okra plant for its versatility and it is often associated with health, prosperity, and community. In this spirit, The Okra Project hopes to extend free, delicious, and nutritious meals to Black Trans people experiencing food insecurity.
Pride Foundation is building a better, safer, and more equitable world for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) people and our families in the Northwest. Their work is motivated by the fundamental belief that every person should be able to live safely, openly, and genuinely in the places we call home. All of their movements for justice are deeply interconnected. LGBTQ+ people hold a whole host of identities that make up Pride Foundation - people of color, Two-Spirit, youth, elders, people with disabilities, Native American, Alaskan Native, First Nation, women, immigrants, and people of faith. Pride Foundation believes that all of our identities together shape our lived experiences and impact the opportunities we have in the world.
The TWOC Solidarity Network upholds the self determination of Two-Spirit, Trans Women and Femmes of color and creates opportunities to exercise collective and community care.

The fund is one element of how TWOC Solidarity Network is confronting the systematic economic disempowerment and violence that Two-Spirit, Trans Women and Femmes of Color face in Washington.
