    We are a podcast that did a fundraiser back in June for all of the protests that were going on for equality and BLM. By the time the money came to us, the local protests died down. However, we still wanted to donate to a place that would be of help in these trying times. We are huge advocates for mental health. Yes, we are two white women, but that doesn’t mean we don’t care about the mental health of our fellow humans. We Need a Therapist is a small podcast. We are just getting started, but diversity is important to us. Supporting others is important to us. Even though we don’t know what it’s like to be black or trans in this environment, we do know that it has to be extra challenging to keep spirits high and prioritize your mental health. We know this isn’t much, but we hope it helps! Sending much love to all of you – those doing this work and those benefiting from it. Take care. We love you. 🖤

    Dear brave and wonderful people,
    I’m a scientist (in genomics of neuroscience) and in about a year I’ll hopefully be able to recruit student to come to my lab to do scientific research together. I have ambitious plans to increase minorities (from several groups) in high level science. My goals still need to materialize and I’ll be in touch! In the meantime, I would love to advice and help anyone in your community that wants to get into science! (I have a scientifically very broad and international background).
    My biggest respects for your efforts and achievements! Together we are stronger! And it has been scientifically shown and published (I can provide references if wanted) that a diverse group of people produce better science! This holds true also for businesses and other fields. Actually for pretty much everything.
    Thank you for the personal sacrifice you are all investing to make the world a better place.
    Love and peace,
    Lucia

    I am pleased to donate the amount of $100 to your organization. Wishing you warmth and positivity during Transgender Awareness Week as well as the coming holiday season. Thank you so much for the work that you are doing.

  87. Megan Tucker

    I am a psychologist in MA/RI – in addition to my work with TGNB adults, I also train clinicians on topics related to trans competence + the intersections of other marginalized identities such as race & fatness. This month, I offered an advanced gender affirming surgery assessment training for clinicians and pledged to donate 15% of the proceeds to BTAC in support of the work you’re doing for Black trans folks – thank you!!

  88. Megan Brown

    You are seen and loved.

  89. Suzanna Theobald

    I truly have a heart for your cause. I will be sending you a $20 bill stamped with “Tump” on it which I received from the ATM that way. It gives me much pleasure to donate it to your cause on behalf of the jerk who defaced the bill with such poison. I am also including a check for $100. As a nurse, I see the disparity and the pain in your population. My heart and prayers are with you all.
    With love,
    Suzanna
