STIMULUS CHECKS ARE HITTING BANK ACCOUNTS!!!... But not for Undocumented people. The Trans community is being hit hard by COVID-19, and despite all the mutual aid that is available, the UndocuTrans community is still being left behind.
Introducing the UNDOCUTRANS STIMULUS FUND, a fund organized by Trans-Latinx DMV, a Trans Woman Immigrant Led grassroots organization centering Black & Brown Transgender Latin Americans in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area.
In line with many Latin American nations offering stimulus checks to their citizens (such as El Salvador offering $300), this fund is organizing to provide UndocuTrans individuals across the United States with a $350 stimulus check to provide a little bit of support.
Most US Citizens will be receiving $1200 from the government. If 550 people donated 8% of their stimulus check to UndocuTrans people, this fund could support 150 UndocuTrans people. Additionally, if we raise more, we can support Trans-led organizations that are supporting UndocuTrans people.
$350 Stipends x 150 UndocuTrans Individuals = $52,500
7 Workers organizing the UndocuTrans Fund = $5,000
Latino GLBT History Project (Fiscal Sponsor) - $8,000
Trans-Latinx DMV 2020 Operations = $6,500
$5,000 Community Organization Micro Grants x 5 = $25,000
GoFundMe Fees = $3000
We received over 150 request from places across the United States. The application is now closed.
