Powerlifting is a sport I love, but which for which the main federation in the United States is currently structured in a way that excludes most athletes who, for various reasons, do not conform to their gender categories. I am participating in this campaign to raise awareness and funds for the Women's Strength Coalition, which helps trans, nonbinary, gender nonconforming, and intersex athletes participate in strength sports through direct support and advocacy. Getting involved in competitive powerlifting has been a life-changing experience for me. I want everyone to have access to that opportunity.

I am competing at USAPL Raw Nationals on October 18th. I'd like to raise at least $1 for every kilogram I hope to lift towards my competition total!
