The Trevor Project’s CEO and Executive Director Amit Paley welcomed guests by stressing the importance of The Trevor Project’s presence. “Today, The Trevor Project is needed more than ever. The day after the presidential election last fall, calls to our 24/7 lifeline from youth in crisis more than doubled. And every time a decision from this administration comes out that harms LGBTQ youth—especially trans youth—our call volume spikes. Today, we are serving more young people in crisis than at any point in our nearly 20-year history.”
