The Trans Justice Funding Project is a community-led funding initiative founded in 2012 to support grassroots, trans justice groups run by and for trans people. We make grants annually by bringing together a panel of six trans justice activists from around the country to carefully review every application we receive. We center the leadership of trans people organizing around their experiences with racism, economic injustice, transmisogyny, ableism, immigration, incarceration, and other intersecting oppressions. Every penny we raise goes to our grantees with no restrictions and no strings attached because we truly believe in trans leadership.
The Resilience in Communities After Stress & Trauma (ReCAST) Minneapolis program is funded through a multi-year grant from the Department of Health and Human Services' Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. ReCAST Minneapolis is intended to assist high-risk youth and families to promote resilience and equity in communities that have recently faced civil unrest through implementation of evidence-based violence prevention and community youth engagement programs, as well as linkages to trauma-informed behavioral health services. SAMHSA created the ReCAST program to support communities that have lived through demonstrations of mass protest in response to police-involved shootings of unarmed African-American males.
