ABOUT THE TRANSKIDS PURPLE RAINBOW FOUNDATION

TKPRF
is committed to the premise that Gender Dysphoria is something a child can't control and it is society that needs to change, not them. Families need to support their children and be encouraged to allow them to grow-up free of gender roles.

TKPRF is committed to enhancing the future lives of TransKids by educating schools, peers, places of worship, the medical community, government bodies, and society in general, in an effort to seek fair and equal treatment for all transyouth.

TKPRF is committed to funding research to study the current plight and challenges of transyouth. There is an urgent need for curriculum changes in universities and medical school to meet the needs of all transgender individuals.

TKPRF is committed to supporting TransKids in their school systems so they may receive equal rights in order to ensure a safe and bully free education.

TKPRF continually uses media outlets to educate and enlighten society, and to challenge injustices due to discrimination.

TKPRF reaches out to the homeless youth and those that have nowhere else to turn. Funds for healthcare, and scholarships can be made available to transyouth in need.

TKPRF is aware that sex and gender are seen and used interchangeable in many arenas. These two entities are very separate and need to be divided. It is time for the politicians to listen and for the medical professionals to speak up. It is time for the young voices of TransKids to be heard.

Jazz is a co-founder of TKPRF and her mom, Jeanette, serves as President.

*up to a maximum donation of $10,000.
