Our give-away-the-plate recipient for June 2022 is Louisiana Trans Advocates.
Each month we dedicate all of our non-pledge income to an organization doing the work that best embodies our Unitarian Universalist principles and values.
Louisiana Trans Advocates is a statewide organization advocating for the rights of trans, nonbinary, and gender-nonconforming people in Louisiana.
The local Shreveport chapter meets at All Souls every first Sunday of the month at 1:30 PM.
Louisiana Trans Advocates provides support, advocacy, and crisis support for trans people, as well as resource lists of health care providers, legal assistance, and a guide to the necessary ID documents for making name and gender changes
