Familia: Trans Queer Liberation Movement is the only national LGBTQ Latinx organization in the United States and works at the intersection of immigrant and LGBTQ rights and racial justice. Our mission is to work at local and national levels to achieve the collective liberation of trans, queer and gender nonconforming Latinxs through community organizing, advocacy and education. We seek to create positive changes in our communities in order for everyone to thrive and lead authentic lives.
How we helped
The Charity Pot funding will help Familia: TQLM build momentum and grow our national campaign to end the detention and deportation of transgender undocumented immigrants. These resources will allow us to train and develop new LGBTQ Latinx leaders and engage them in Familia: TQLM’s campaign and programmatic work. Also, the funding will help us continue to build local and national coalitions with organizations across issues and sectors in order to grow our advocacy efforts.
