Like a lot of people I know, I've frequently found myself outraged by how our government has cruelly, cavalierly worked to make life in this country more difficult for the most vulnerable among us. As a proud part of the LGBTQ+ community, I have been particularly disgusted by this administration's multiple attempts to marginalize and erase trans people.
With news of their latest effort to literally define trans identity out of existence, I decided that I wanted to do what I could to support an organization that provides increasingly crucial legal assistance and protection to the members of my community who need it the most. I figured the first step in doing so would be to take something I already do often and well, running, and raise money doing that.
So as I inch closer to running my very first marathon in Philadelphia on November 18th, I would like to encourage anyone who wishes to support me in my endeavor to donate money that I can then donate to the Transgender Law Center (https://transgenderlawcenter.org/). No amount is too small. Please contribute however you can, even if it's simply spreading the word. Thanks!
