“Black Trans COVID-19 Community Response Fund provides the transgender community rapid response funds for emergency food, shelter, utilities, transportation, and health care, also free care packages that include life-saving PPE, personal hygiene and safe sex supplies and referral to resources for our most vulnerable populations at their point of need during the coronavirus pandemic.”
