I am very excited to announce that I am currently fundraising to support the Trans Spiritual Care Initiative. Did you know that over 50% of Trans people report having to educate their providers about trans healthcare needs? Over 1 out of 4 Trans people report experiencing harassment or assault in healthcare settings. The TSCI is an effort led by Sojourn Chaplaincy to improve care for some of the most marginalized people in our communities through educating Chaplains, Clergy and healthcare providers around gender diversity.
In this increasing hostile climate against Transgender and Gender Variant people, efforts like these are even more critical. The Trans Spiritual Care Initiative is leading the way in reaching across differences and building allies in the faith community. There’s an amazing team of Trans and Gender Non-Conforming Clergy and Spiritual Leaders who are leading these training and we need your support to help get the word out about this project.
