BTTF Book Sponsorship Application
Black Trans Travel Fund's book sponsorship program provides Black trans women across the U.S. with free copies of literature each month. We do this as a part of our commitment to investing in the lives of Black trans women, with a recognition that not only must we continue to pour resources into Black trans communities, but that community engagement in political education is a necessary part of the work required in the fight for Black and trans liberation.
We've chosen to sponsor books in tandem with Noname Bookclub's monthly highlights, because they have continued to show alignment with our values as an organization that recognizes the need to divest from white supremacy, capitalism, incarceration and gender essentialism. We also at times select our own books of the month in order to uplift and share the work of, as well monetarily contribute to, Black trans authors.
We purchase all the books we ship out directly through The Lit Bar (unless a particular book is not currently stocked with them) the ONLY Black owned and operated bookstore in the Boogie Down Bronx.
