Expense policies

We exist primarily for the redistribution of wealth and mutual aid to the Black and Brown trans community. We pay the project leader and workshop facilitator for their time through a grant from the Challenge and Change fund. All our other expenses are for the upkeep of the project (also paid from the Challenge and Change grant) and to pay individuals involved with the project for their time and their expertise. Any donated money will go directly towards Black and Brown Trans and Non-Binary people.
