CeCe McDonald: The Girl Who Lived.
Ask yourself this question: are you really living if none of your basic needs are met? That's exactly what CeCe is dealing with, RIGHT NOW, in this very moment. CeCe is currently homeless, unemployed, and uninsured with a laundry list of other things that she needs in order to have the basic necessities to live and continue fighting for Black people. Luckily, a few of her family are relieving some of this stress and trauma by letting her sleep in their homes while she looks for something permanent.
That being said, we are fundraising for housing (at the very least, a security deposit along with first and last month’s rent) and other basic needs (food, transportation, cell phone). Make sure when sharing, share to all your networks: college students and campuses, friends and family members who can spare some money, work and job connections etc.
It is our responsibility to take care of Black trans women because historically the only people that have been there for Black trans women have been Black trans women. Black trans women are always on the front lines and always under attack and this is just a small way we can help CeCe feel more loved and secure in a world made to kill her. We know that CeCe's situation is something many black trans women are dealing with so even if you don't donate to CeCe, please give money and resources to black trans woman in your community.
Support black trans women today not when it's too late.
Car $3,000+ First, last, security $3,000 + phone $658 + gas and electric $900 = $7,558
