Autopsy and family costs for Quawan Charles

Fundraising for the autopsy and funeral of Quawan Charles, who died under uncertain circumstances.


"On the evening of October 30th, Quawan Charles was picked up from his father’s house by a white male and his mother. His body was found November 2nd. The parish of St. Mary refuses to release the findings of the autopsy. In response, the family is attempting to raise funds needed to conduct a second autopsy before his funeral. An individual autopsy needs to be conducted before November 12th to ensure that all findings by the medical examiner can come back conclusive." — Fundraiser organisers

Yasha’s Transition Fund

Fundraising for Afro-Latina actress Yasha to transition.


" But due to the social preference of cisnormativity intersecting with antiblackness + misogynoir, access to crucial gender-affirming procedures is difficult for my community. Like many of my Black Trans sisters, I am in need of assistance as I continue to move forward. I am looking to you-- my community, online friends, or some kind strangers-- for some support along the way." — Yasha
