The Trevor Project is honored to have been selected by multi-Grammy Award-winner Alicia Keys to be a part WE ARE HERE, a movement inspired by her new song that seeks to inspire fans to support 12 incredible nonprofit causes. To start, Alicia donated $1 million of her own money, which will be divided between each organization, including The Trevor Project. Now, the We Are Here campaign is empowering people nationwide to find the cause that speaks to them, and take action to build a kinder world.
From November 10th to the 14th, Alicia will be highlighting The Trevor Project in different ways every day. We are so excited and grateful for this visibility, and hope you keep an eye out for our week-long feature by following #wearehere on Facebook and Twitter. You can also show your support by making a donation to Trevor at www.Trvr.org/WeAreHere.
So why is The Trevor Project here? We are here to end suicide among LGBTQ young people through life-saving, life-affirming crisis services, resources, education, and advocacy; and until we’re no longer needed, we will work 24/7, 365 days a year to make sure that LGBTQ youth always have a safe place to turn to for help.*
Because as Alicia says in her song, “We are here for all of us, that’s why we are here, why we are here.”
