We're here to provide hope
even when it's realistic to feel there is none.


And that takes work – emotional labor that should not go unpaid. That's where you come in.


Rest for Resistance strives to uplift marginalized communities, those who rarely get access to adequate health care or social support. It can be difficult for queer & trans people of color to connect with help in a crisis because of barriers to health care access, the overwhelming lack of affirming mental health providers, poverty, and inadequate resources.

Every $1 we receive shows those of us who are devalued by society that our survival is necessary, that we deserve care. You can also help by sharing Rest for Resistance with your friends. Thank you for helping us spread the word and grow our impact!


R4R also provides:

  • Private online space for trans & queer people of color to get peer support
  • FacebookTwitter mental health resources
  • Affirmations on Instagram
  • QTPoC Meditation group, monthly in NYC
  • Paid opportunities for queer & trans people of color to publish their art and writing
