Update #7

Thanks for supporting my campaign! We've have reached goal for Phase 1 of our campaign. It means a lot have your encouragement and support. We could've have done this without you. I’ll keep you updated on the progress of my campaign.

We are now in Phase 2 of our campaign and are accepting bids from construction companies.

Phase 2- Basement/Main Floor Reno $190,000

During this phase, we will focus on renovating the basement space and main floors. With the age of our building and obvious we anticipate a blank canvas renovation. Our goal is to create short-term housing for out- of- town staff, clients, interns, and other TKO guests on the lower level. The dorm-style lower level housing will include gender-neutral restrooms, gender-neutral showers, community kitchen and common area, a rec/exercise room, laundry room, private study, and a business lab. This level will be ideal for single clients needing emergency or short-term housing and income-driving housing for conference center/retreats and training.

The Main Floor renovation requires the least amount of work. This floor will operate as the Innovation Center. The Innovation Center will provide a hub for conferences/retreats, the RJ Free Store, a commissary kitchen, and staff offices.

Update #4

A word from our ED:

“If we look back after all of these protests and we’re still transphobic and homophobic, we did it wrong. The time for change is now.”
Quentin is working to effect change through his organization, The Knights & Orchids Inc. - TKO, providing grassroots support to members of the Black transgender community.
