Why did you agree to join BTF’s advisory committee?
“For too long now, Black trans women have had our demands for employment and Black trans leadership met with tokenization and further exploitation of our communities. I understand The Black Trans Fund as meeting those demands and then some. I agreed to join The Black Trans fund’s advisory board because I believe in Black trans leadership, full stop. Black trans people deserve the resources to engage our communities as we see fit, in the ways that are most relevant to our respective bases. It’s an honor to support this work in any way that I can.”
