Why I support the Compassion Coalition
Peggy Rajski (she/her) is an Oscar-winning filmmaker and founder of the groundbreaking nonprofit The Trevor Project. Rajski won the Academy Award for Best Live Action Short with her directorial debut, the short film Trevor (1994), a poignant comedy about a young teen whose world is turned upside down when word spreads at school that he might be gay. Her experience with the film led her to create The Trevor Project, America’s first 24/7 suicide prevention service dedicated to LGBTQ young people. Her goal – from founding day in 1998 to today – is ensuring Trevor’s legacy as a vital and industry-leading lifesaving resource for LGBTQ young people.
