Putting Your Gift to Work
Your contribution will help us continue to provide our quality training and resources to the community as well as expand and promote our mission.
The WPC and Matrix Center are only as strong as the research that supports it. Your assistance will help us partner with like-minded organizations to conduct research, develop ways for individuals to report accountability around taking action, and publish our new online, open access, peer reviewed journal.
Scholarships are needed to support graduate research projects, as well as participation in the annual White Privilege Conference and Knapsack Institute.
Our Work in Action
by Linda Lidov, President, Highland PR
Tre started coming out socially as transgender during college, and decided to make the medical changes needed to help him present as male. With a deeper voice and facial hair that formed his outward identity in the years that followed, Tre’s transition had a profound impact on his life. And through it all, the positive support Tre received at school made all the difference in the world.
The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs created an open, supportive learning environment, so much so that Tre was invited to visit other classrooms as a guest speaker, participate in a campus-wide speaker series, and conduct departmental trainings about topics related to sexuality and gender. When he started teaching his own classes after graduate school, the support of his advisors led him to openly discuss his transition with students. Tre attributes his positive experience largely to the Matrix Center and is now a workshop facilitator at both the WPC and Knapsack Institute.
Having played a role in founding the Matrix Center, Tre has experienced the local and societal impacts of the program firsthand. Now a doctoral student in sociology at Syracuse University, Tre incorporates the teachings of the Matrix Center into his personal and professional life.
