The Okra Project is a collective that provides resources and meals to Black trans people. The Okra Project has also set up The Nina Pop Mental Health Recovery Fund and The Tony McDade Mental Health Recovery Fund, emergency mutual aid funds that raise money for mental health therapy.
Emergency Release Fund is a member of the National Bail Fund Network, which was established following the death of Layleen Polanco. The mutual aid fund raises money to post bail for trans people, though in light of COVID-19, the fund has expanded its mission to post bail for medically-vulnerable individuals and those who identify as LGBTQ.
Black Visions Collective aims to organize Black communities and dismantle systems of violence while centering queer and trans people.
