Special programs for lesbians and transgender women launched by
The L-Fund Health & Wellness Fund

Black Lives Matter

It is important to The L-Fund organization that we support our community. We believe that the mental, emotional and physical strain our communities of color and allies are experiencing deserve more than a band-aid or a one-time conversation. With that in mind, under The L-Fund Health and Wellness program we developed a comprehensive program called: Identifying and Combating Racism-Tools to Fortify the Mind, Body and Spirit. A program for lesbians of color and trans women of color, in particular, to fortify themselves from the daily attacks of systematic racism. We also provide a space for our European-American/white lesbian and trans sisters to interrogate, educate and fuel their spirit so that they can become better allies to communities of color. We hope you circle back, give us feedback and let us know other topics you wish to cover in the future.
