We are thrilled to announce that we raised $276 for the Sylvia Rivera Law Project (SRLP) at the End-of-Year Elixir on Friday, December 11! Many thanks to all who came to the event and who contributed to supporting this important, trailblazing sister organization.
The Sylvia Rivera Law Project works to guarantee that all people are free to self-determine their gender identity and expression, regardless of income or race, and without facing harassment, discrimination, or violence. It provides crucial legal services for low income transgender people and transgender people of color in the areas of survival & self determination, immigrant rights, and prisoner justice.
GAPIMNY’s donation will support SRLP’s general operations and supports our mission to empower queer and trans API people to make positive change. It also illustrates our commitment to building alliances with partner organizations that support the larger movement for queer and trans people of color.
Again, thank you for your generous support — we could not have done this without you! We hope to see you at upcoming events!
