BTRG was created to redistribute wealth, in its many forms, from non-Black people everywhere to Black LGBTQIA+ people in our historical community. The purpose of this group is to be a continuous source of monetary, physical, and material resources for Black members based on the leadership of Black administrators. This group is not an educational resource for non-Black folks. It is not a charity group; we do not provide donations, we make payments towards a larger societal and spiritual debt. This group is led and created by a community of Black Trans people while white and non-Black group moderators are entirely volunteer (never compensated) and are responsible for the majority of the organizational and maintenance work. Each part of this revolutionary action has its role and we welcome you to join and play your part in enriching lives and rebalancing our cities wealth.
