We are saddened and heart broken to find out this weekend that one of our alumni for the SF TEAM Leadership Academy and a former staff member of SFCHC with the Trans Access Program, passed away this weekend, Jasmarie Powell

Jasmarie was a spunky and supercool young lady who always went along and always joined every opportunity to work with her community. She worked at San Francisco Community Health Center as a Peer Navigator for our program, TRANS ACCESS- a program that serves trans women of color living with HIV. At the time, the program was a demonstration program and her contribution to the program was vital and valuable. Jasmine's lived experience with her own life taught her some of the most important lessons in life in which she was able to impart to many of her clients, ensuring that she gave the best service and advice on how to navigate thru this world.

When we invited Jasmarie to participate in our SF TEAM Leadership Academy, she didn't hesitate. Her peers in the academy, listened and learned from her story and life experiences in which she graciously shared with everyone. We invited her also to participate in our Digital Story Workshop in which she made a beautiful digital story. While at the workshop, she always kept a happy and positive outlook which became infectious to the other participant.

We will miss Jasmarie for she always carried a certain unique joy with her. When things aren't working well, she would turn the situation to a better on with her words of wisdom or even with her humor. Soar high Jasmarie...you are free as a bird and can fly as high as you can. YOU WILL BE MISSED.

Thank you for the wonderful memories that you shared with us at SF TEAM and at SFCHC. You were a delight and will remain in our hearts always.....

The Trans Day of Remembrance Committee would love to invite you to march in celebration and mourning of the lives of our Trans Siblings who have passed this previous year. This Monday, November 16th , m 6pm evening march and rally is in addition to our Trans Day of Remembrance set to happen on Friday, November 20, 6:00pm via Facebook Live.

This year has been a tough one, and we have lost too many of our family. On top of unjust and violent murders, we are also experiencing a global pandemic that has affected our communities in great numbers, and we have lost great leaders to natural causes as well.

We know that the grieving process is different for everyone, and that many of our families choose to celebrate the lives of those who left us. So, in an effort to heal together, we want to invite you to celebrate the lives of the people who we have lost and remember them as we continue to fight for the right to live happy, fruitful lives without constant discrimination and violence.

We will be meeting in front of City Hall, Polk Street Side.

We are requiring all attendees to wear a mask and social distance at all times during the event.

If on the day of the rally you are showing any of the following symptoms:

Cough
Fever or chills
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Fatigue
Muscle or body aches
Headache
New loss of taste or smell
Sore throat
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
Diarrhea

--or think you may have been exposed to Covid-19 --

We kindly ask you to stay home and take care!
(We will also try to livestream the event so check in here for updates)

Event outline - subject to change -

6:00pm - Gather in front of City Hall
6:30pm - Speakers (TBA)
7:00pm - March to Turk and Taylor
7:45pm - Closing speeches

As Pride month comes to a close, let's not forget that today is for National Day of LGBTQ Giving with Give OUT Day. Give OUT Day is large network of LGBTQ organizations who have come together to set a platform to fundraise for the month. This year we held a strong campaign put on by our Board President Mario Choi and Board Treasure Ben Plumbley who raised over $900 for us during the month. We also have our dear supported Michael Fullam who is raising funds the SFCC! This goes a long way in helping support our programs and services especially while combating COVID-19 in our neighborhoods!

San Francisco Transgender Empowerment Advocacy Mentorship Program - SF TEAM

SF Transgender Empowerment Advocacy Mentorship Program (SF TEAM) presents another new digital story by Mikaela Kendrick.

" Thrive, Baby Girl" by Mikaela Kendrick

Mikaela’s story is a story that we often hear after it has happened to someone which most of the time, leaves a tear within one’ s self and some have to endure to live with it for the rest of their lives in pain and agony, but some can breakout from it and confront the situation with courage and determination. Mikaela chose the latter part.

Mikaela was determined to work this out from within so she can function normally and be able to pursue her goals and aspiration. However, it wasn’t easy. Being beautiful inside and outside, people took advantage of her youth, her innocence and her identity. Mikaela kept on thriving until she made sure she was on a path in her life where she can live authentically and as strong as she could be and not compromise her safety and wellness being trans.

Mikaela’s digital story was produced by herself thru the Digital Story Center. Presented by SF TEAM and the Human Right Commission of San Francisco. All photos, music and videos has been cleared for usage.

WARNING: Content of video may have scenes or information shared that may cause triggers emotionally and mentally for viewers. Please watch with caution.

What's at stake for LGBTQ communities in the 2020 Census? The Census is our opportunity to claim and build our power as a community. The results of the Census determine the amount of representatives we have in Congress, how districts are drawn, and how many electoral votes California gets in presidential elections.

San Francisco Transgender Empowerment Advocacy Mentorship Program - SF TEAM

For Pride month, SF Transgender Empowerment Advocacy Mentorship Program (SF TEAM) is proud to launch a series of digital stories of transgender individuals from San Francisco. These seven trans individuals embarked on a 3-day workshop and created their own digital stories. Each participant provides a testament to their individual experiences, which they showcased in many ways to bring awareness to the issues that the trans community faces around safety, wellness and violence. Each week in June, a story or two will be released leading to Trans March and SF Pride.

This 2nd digital story is a story by Erica. Erica is a Filipina American born in San Francisco. Erica’s story is a truly unique and an empowering experience. Finding herself at the age of 50, she reflects what her life was around sex work, addiction and her struggle to make it alive day by day and how she broke out of it and created safety and wellness for her.

Erika’s video was produced by herself thru the Digital Story Center. All photos, music and videos has been cleared for usage. Warning: Content of video may have scenes or infromation that may cause triggers emotionally and mentally for viewrs.

SF TEAM is a program that aims to harness and nurture a new generation of transgender leaders with the skills and strategic perspectives to effectively confront, challenge, and change the social environment to better meet the needs of trans San Franciscans.

Launching this series, is story by Jasmarie. An African American trans woman who has struggled in many facets of life. Jasmine’s message in her story is a good reminder to everyone, that even though our lives are faced with struggles, challenges and how we are likely to be at risk for violence and all the negativity thrown to us, that we need to learn to love ourselves and get a sense of our own strength as human. When all fails, look deep within, we have the power to take charge of our own life.
