Trans Lifeline is the epitome of "radical community care"—a phrase that stands out immediately upon visiting its website. The grassroots project is deemed the "first hotline for trans people" and it is built by trans people for trans people. At its core, it works tirelessly to provide peer support for community members who are struggling due to the systemic barriers of oppression encoded in our society.
Trans Lifeline's vision is clearly stated: "We envision a world where trans people have the connection, economic security, and care everyone needs and deserves – free of prisons and police." While the hotline enables community members to gain emotional support, Trans Lifeline also doubles as a microgrants 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. This enables it to provide financial support where needed, as well.
