Funeral costs for Christa

$5,154 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 164 people in 4 months
Our friend Christa Leigh Steele-Knudslien was killed this week. We, her friends, are raising funds for her family to cover funeral costs.

Anything left over will be donated to Trans Lifeline.

Interpartner Violence is a real thing and Trans folks experience a disproportionate amount of interpartner violence.

If you are worried for a friend or relative who you think may be experiencing abuse, please remind them that help is available

Western Mass - Elizabeth Freeman Center: 866-401-2425.

Trans Lifeline: (877) 565-8860

My name is justin adkins. I have been friends with Christa for 10 years. I worked with her as one of the founders of New England Trans Pride and I used to live in Williamstown, MA (right next to North Adams)
A group of us who are friends are working with her family to make sure that costs are covered. Since I no longer live in MA, running this gofundme is my part.
I will have a full record of funds raised and expenses in case anyone wants more details.
