Operation Science Vagina Recovery

Even our strongest and most amazing friends sometimes need help, and that's what Marissa needs from us now.  Recently Marissa was forced from a job where she faced constant harassment from transphobic coworkers with no support from management.  Now with gender confirmation surgery already scheduled for September, she's faced with potential employers turning her away, not wanting to hire someone who will be taking an immediate 6 week leave of absence.

We're trying to help offset the costs Marissa and her family will be facing due to this loss of income.  We shouldn't lose our jobs because we're transgender, and no one should have their financial lives destroyed attempting to access healthcare.  These are things we believe in strongly, and this is an opportunity to show Marissa that we truly believe these things.

Obviously not everyone is in a position to help financially, but if you are, please seriously consider donating.  Marissa and her family have meant a lot to my life, and the lives of so many others.  Please help give back if you can.
