Chrysalis would like to introduce the #FlyTheTransFlag Campaign!
Everyone has the right to feel safe and included in our local community and not feel like they constantly risk being the victim of hate crimes. Join us and #FlyTheTransFlag to demonstrate you’re an ally of the trans community.
Chrysalis works tirelessly to tackle isolation and feelings of loneliness for trans and questioning people, their families and friends across Wessex. We need your support to offer our life-saving services; providing support and wellbeing groups, first line of contact for hate-crime incidents, one-to-one counselling, advocacy and outreach. Increasing awareness and understanding and promoting inclusion, breaking down barriers and normalise gender diversity.
Trans Awareness Week, 12th – 19th November 2019, is a celebration for trans people and their allies. It provides an opportunity to raise the visibility of trans people and the challenges they face through prejudice, discrimination and violence
Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) on 20th November 2019 is an international event with events worldwide providing a moment for everyone to stand united in a safe environment; to remember all those who have lost their lives through acts of hate-crime in the past year. Moreover, it provides a space to remember those people close to us who lost their own battle and are no longer with us.
For Trans Awareness Week, we are asking you show your support by getting behind our #FlyTheTransFlag campaign. Don’t have a flagpole? Then fly the flag from your window, in the office or anywhere else people will see it.
For a £20 donation we will post you a trans flag (UK post only) (plus £3 p&p).
For a £5 donation we will post you a Trans flag pin (plus £3 p&p).
We can also list your business, organisation or name as an ally on our website
ANY donation you can gift us towards this campaign will help us to continue to make a difference by offering inclusive help and support.
– Each £20 raised pays for two places at a Chrysalis meeting
– Each £40 raised pays for one new person to access Chrysalis
– Each £100 raised allows Chrysalis to welcome a new volunteer
Your act of kindness will really make a difference.
With your support we can work together to promote inclusivity to ensure that everyone feels safe everywhere.
