Help Trans Women of Color This Holiday Season


Julisa Abad, director of transgender outreach for the Fair Michigan Justice Project, seeks support from the community to help her trans sisters who are experiencing homelessness. The mission of TeamABAD during the holiday and season is to help trans women of color find a place to sleep at night, eat a hot meal, get adequate clothing during the winter and build relationships with organizations who can help provide ongoing services.

"This is a glimpse of our reality - 60 percent of trans women of color earn less than $10,000 a year, 26 percent are unemployed and transgender people are four times more likely to be homeless, beat up and yes, even killed," said Abad. "So please, help us to help ourselves."
