AIDS/BREAST CANCER EMERGENCY FUNDS
The AIDS Emergency Fund (AEF) provides short-term emergency financial assistance to San Franciscans battling HIV/AIDS. Since 1982, the AEF has rallied community support to help pay basic living costs such as rent, utility bills and medical expenses for poverty-level San Franciscans with disabling HIV or AIDS. Annually, the AEF helps nearly 2,500 clients.
The Breast Cancer Emergency Fund (BCEF) was founded in 2001, modeled after the AIDS Emergency Fund. The BCEF provides short-term emergency financial assistance to low-income San Franciscans battling breast cancer. The BCEF also makes referrals to agencies that can provide longer-term help with practical and emotional support and other vital services.
TRANSGENDER LAW CENTER
Transgender Law Center works to change law, policy, and attitudes so that all people can live safely, authentically, and free from discrimination regardless of their gender identity or expression. We envision a future where gender self-determination and authentic expression are seen as basic rights and matters of common human dignity.
Transgender Law Center is a multidisciplinary organization that advances the movement for transgender and gender non-conforming (TGNC) people using an integrated set of approaches, including strategic litigation, policy advocacy, educational efforts, movement building, and the creation of programs that meet the needs of TGNC communities. Programs include Detention Project, Legal Information Helpline, and Movement-Building. They played an instrumental role leading to the decision by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission affirming that transgender people are protected against discrimination under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.
