Kicking Out Transphobia Tournament Fundraiser started in 2020 in Philadelphia after the quarantine was lifted, a partnership between CASA and Philly Falcons was the first tournament with the new Covid-19 protocols in Philadelphia. The Tournament Fundraiser started in Philadelphia and hosted Divisions for Mens & Non-binary, Womens and Non-binary and raised over 20k funds for different Trans local and national organizations like Morris Home, Rainbow Room, Trans Lifeline, Philly Trans March and others. Now the cause is taking an International level hosting tournaments in other cities in the US as well other countries around the world and because we know transphobia needs to stop, and together we can contribute with our part by using soccer as a way to raise funds and awareness and increase acceptance for the community.” The first edition of the tournament consisted of 8 teams in the Men’s & non-binary Division. One year later we added the 7v7 Women’s and Non-binary Division.
