The Children’s Religious Education community selected The Trevor Project as our May Share the Plate recipient. The Trevor Project is dedicated to building a safer, more-inclusive world where all LGBTQ young people see a bright future for themselves. LGBTQ young people are four times more likely to attempt suicide, and suicide remains the second leading cause of death among all young people in the U.S.
The Trevor Project works across five major areas to affirm the inherent worth and dignity of LGBTQ young people.
- Crisis Support: crisis counseling via phone, text, and chat 24/7, 365 day a year.
- TrevorSpace: a safe, affirming, moderated online community for LGBTQ young people between the ages of 13-24, intentionally designed for them.
- Advocacy: legislation, movements, education, and more to change our world for the better.
- Education: helping allies and educators understand the needs and challenges of LGBTQ young people.
- Research: participating in research studies and partnering with suicidologists.
As The Trevor Project celebrates its 25th anniversary, LGBTQ young people across the U.S. face dangerous rhetoric and frequent legislative attacks, including a record number of bills targeting transgender and nonbinary youth.
