The Tony McDade Mental Health Recovery Fund
In the wake of the murders of Nina Pop, Tony McDade, and so many more Black Trans people, The Okra Project recognizes that Black Trans people are feeling the weight of our siblings being murdered while their murderers, whether it be the assailants or the police force that puts very little effort into finding their killers, walk free.
To honor Nina Pop, Tony McDade, and the many Black Trans people who been murdered by state-sanctioned violence, The Okra Project is dedicating $15,000 to create the Nina Pop Mental Health Recovery Fund and the Tony McDade Mental Health Recovery Fund. We are asking the community to match our commitment by donating, as you are able, monetary support to sustain this work or donate one of your scheduled sessions with your Black male/female therapist.
The Tony McDade Mental Health Recovery Fund is an emergency mutual aid fund that raises money to pay for one-time mental health therapy sessions with licensed Black male therapists. Those who are willing and interested may donate funds AND/OR may donate one therapy session with their Black male therapist to be used by Black Trans men, Black transmasculine people, and/or Black folks who identify as trans* who have been participating in the protests against state-sanctioned violence or are coping with the emotional stress of dealing with the murder of Nina Pop, Tony McDade, and the epidemic of Trans people being murdered worldwide.
For those interested in donating to either fund please donate at
with the subject line “Nina Pop Fund” or “Tony McDade Fund”.
For anyone interested in donating a therapy session with their Black male or Black woman therapist to either of these funds, please email
so that we can coordinate details with you and your therapist.
*The Okra Project recognizes that gender does not fall in the categories of man, woman, and nonbinary. The transgender community is a complicated tapestry that consists of many identities and communities. Therefore, in an effort to ensure that we honor our mission to serve Black Trans people, The Okra Project encourages all Black folks who identify as nonbinary, agender, bigender, genderfuckers, genderfluid, or any identity that they consider to be under the Transgender umbrella to apply to whichever fund they feel most affirms their gender today.
Do you identify as a Black person of Trans Experience?
The Okra Project recognizes that gender does not fall in the categories of man, woman, and nonbinary. The transgender community is a complicated tapestry that consists of many identities and communities. We cannot and will not determine who you are for you. We ask that you answer this question according to your own definitions of selfhood.
