Update #2

Thank you all for your continued support of our sister in her time of need, we deeply appreciate all who have donated and shared our fundraiser. Sadly, there has been some devastating developments. (Trigger warning: discussion of suicide and misgendering):

This weekend the disabled trans woman of color we are fundraising for was in crisis over her situation and went to the emergency room at Bayonne Medical Center. After being misgendered and cruelly accused of lying about her situation by the staff our sister made an attempt to end her life. Thankfully, she was not successful and was released days later. We are increasing our goal to provide funds to cover any medical expenses she may have from her hospitalization.
We are also extending our fundraiser past July 17th. Please continue to continue to support our efforts anyway you can. Feel free to leave words of encouragement as well.
