“We Are Here” Movement

Alicia Keys with Deputy Executive Director Steve Mendelsohn at the We Are Here Movement <br>launch, Sept. 21, 2014 The Trevor Project is honored to be a part of WE ARE HERE, a movement created by multi-Grammy Award-winner Alicia Keys to inspire her fans to raise their voices in support of 12 incredible nonprofit groups from across the globe. To start, Alicia donated $1 million of her own money to be divided between each organization. Now, it’s up to each of us – because we’re all here for a reason, and we all have the power to create change.

The Trevor Project’s WE ARE HERE Pledge:

We Are Here logo We are here to end suicide among gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) young people in America through life-saving, life-affirming crisis services, resources, education, and advocacy. 

We recognize that our country faces an alarming reality: LGB youth are 4 times more likely to attempt suicide as their straight peers; questioning youth are 3 times more likely; and it is estimated that over 40% of transgender people have attempted suicide.

We know that that these numbers are set not in stone – it only takes one supportive adult to make a difference in a young person’s life.

We will continue to work 24/7, 365 days a year to make sure that LGBTQ youth always have a safe place to turn to for help: whether it’s over the phone, online, or through text.

We are here – you are not alone.
