CBTEL (Coalition for Black Trans Economic Liberation)
The Coalition for Black Trans Economic Liberation (CBTEL) was created for and by Black, transgender Philadelphians. The mission of this group is to redistribute wealth, in its many forms, from non-black people everywhere to Black LGBTQ+ people in Philadelphia. We strive to be a continuous source of monetary, physical, and material resources for the Black members of our organization. Non-black members of CBTEL work to ensure the impossibly large social, economic, and spiritual debt we owe to our Black, transgender, and LGB+ neighbors does not go unnoticed. The Coalition operates under the direction of the Black, transgender founders while the white and non-black group facilitators are entirely volunteer (never compensated) and are responsible for the majority of the organizational and maintenance work.
