As families of transgender youth in Texas face alarming new threats of state interference, including seeing their love and affirmation for their children classified as “child abuse,” the Campaign for Southern Equality (CSE) has launched a new rapid response grant round to quickly route funds to Texans impacted. The grant round of $20,0000 will be distributed through CSE’s Southern Equality Fund.
