#WeAreThis Queer Mobilization Fund Application
The #WeAreThis Queer Mobilization Fund is a rapid response fund created to support community mobilizations and projects that advance Queer and Trans liberation. The goals of this fund is to support queer and trans people of color on the frontlines of struggles for freedom and liberation. Many queer and trans people of color recognize the legacy of slavery, genocide, and violence that makes House Bill 2 (HB2) possible. It is with this reflective lens that illuminates our histories and inspires change in our realities, that queer and trans people of color are organizing to reclaim our futures.

We evaluate proposals on a rolling basis and distribute payment on a monthly basis. Currently, the fund prioritizes proposals centered around HB2. HB2 was passed by North Carolina General Assembly in March of this year. Among other alarming attacks on queer and trans communities and workers, this bill legalizes discrimination. The bill creates a barrier for individuals who want to file discrimination lawsuits, and eliminates local municipalities’ power to implement higher minimum wage standards. Overall this bill scapegoats transgender people to wage a broad attack on all communities.

Fund Priorities:
--Open to all organizations, groups, and coalitions, in North Carolina
--Organizations led by Trans & Queer People of Color, with limited access to traditional non-profit funding streams.
--All groups applying must have an organizational budget of less than $250,000 annually.
--Proposals that center a mobilization or direct action as a tactic -- however we will consider other proposals such as trainings, retreats, and media/communication plans.
--Proposals that use an intersectional analysis to uplift the experiences of Queer and Trans people.
