Trans Access to Justice Knowledge Enhancement and Capacity Building
Nov 10, 2020 - Mar 31, 2023
This 29-month project will strengthen the capacity of JusticeTrans to advance LGBTQ2 equality. This will be achieved by building managerial capacity by establishing governance, strategic planning and enhancing technical expertise, improving access to funding opportunities by developing knowledge and expertise in grant writing. The project will increase access to evidence, data, information and knowledge sources to assess community needs and strengthen collaboration among organizations by sharing resources.
At the end of the project, the organization will have increased knowledge and capacity to advance equality with respect to sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression.
The first supplement will be used for an audit of the organization for fiscal year 2022 and non-profit insurance for the organization. These administrative expenditures will help the organization grow its capacity for the next fiscal year.
The second supplement (for phase 2) will be used to build organizational capacity, undertake a community-based strategic planning process and to develop a national network of Two Spirit, trans, non-binary and gender nonconforming advocates, legal professionals, law students, and community-based organizations and allies.
