"We continue to be alarmed and deeply disturbed by the Trump administration’s intentional targeting of the most vulnerable members of the LGBT community, in particular harming queer and trans people of color, all women, LGBTQ youth, seniors, immigrants, religious minorities, and those with disabilities,” said Funders for LGBTQ Issues President Ben Francisco Maulbeck. “We will remain vigilant and committed to keeping our members informed of the impacts of these rollbacks of anti-discrimination protections, as well as the innovative strategies and work LGBTQ communities are building in response.”
Funders for LGBTQ Issues will present programming related to this and other related attacks from the Trump administration at our annual convening Funding Forward, and share other opportunities for funders to learn more about how they can stay updated and respond. If your institution is responding to these attacks, please let Funders for LGBTQ Issues know so that it can monitor the philanthropic response. For those interested in submitting public comments on this rule, you can do so through Family Equality Council’s Every Child Deserves a Family campaign. The campaign includes a broad coalition of LGBTQ and allied organizations.
