All Black Lives Fund -- launched by Contigo Fund -- dedicates funding to frontline LGBTQ+ organizing groups and efforts that are Black LGBTQ+ led in Central Florida to build on the movement for Black lives --- particularly those led by and for Black Transgender, Gender nonconforming, and Gender Nonbinary community and Sex Workers. The Fund will support grassroots organizing to build visibility and power, promote safety, and amplify demands of those most impacted by both anti-Black racism and gender discrimination.
All Black Lives Fund will build on the movement inspired by and in solidarity with #JusticeforGeorgeFloyd. The Fund is motivated by the numerous and often invisibilized cases of violence and murders against our Black Transgender family at the hands of police brutality, white supremacy, and transphobia, including Iyanna Dior, Nina Pop, Tony McDade, Riah Milton and Dominique “Rem’mie” Fells and others recently taken from us. Calling on all of us to #SayTheirNames, we offer support and solidarity to All Black Lives in Central Florida and across the nation.
To increase our impact for this historic movement moment, Contigo has secured a matching grant from Out in The South Fund, a collaborative fund that awards grants to catalyze locally-driven Southern funds that address the needs and strengthen the assets of LGBTQ+ communities in the South.
Each donation will be matched 3-to-1. Meaning every dollar you donate will be matched three times, TRIPLING YOUR IMPACT!!!
Contigo Fund emerged from the horrific Pulse nightclub massacre that deeply impacted LGBTQ+ Latinx communities. Given these roots, our work is driven by the values of intersectionality, self-determination, and collective liberation. Contigo is not only the first and only LGBTQ+ Latinx fund in the U.S. and one of the top funders of LGBTQ+ Latinx communities, it is also historically the top funder of LGBTQ+ Black communities in Central Florida. Supporting LGBTQ+ Black and Brown solidarity -- particularly led by and for marginalized communities -- is core to who we are and what is needed most in this historic moment. We are committed to doing more. Solidarity goes beyond words alone, it requires us to take action. We are unwavering in our commitment and in taking action. Everyone is called to do their part and we invite you to join us.
Thank you for supporting our efforts.
