Queers for Economic Justice and the Forum Project Need Your Help!

Dear Friends and Family,

My organization, Queers for Economic Justice, is currently fighting to win a $5000 grant and WE NEED YOUR VOTE!

The Forum Project (TFP) and Queers for Economic Justice (QEJ) are teaming up to develop a performance series with and by queer shelter residents of New York City using Theatre of the Oppressed. A disproportionate number of New York City's homeless identify as queer, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and/or gender-nonconforming, and yet many face overwhelming discrimination, neglect and abuse at the hands of the systems that claim to support homeless people. Queer homeless need effective resources to combat the oppression that impacts their lives. http://goodart.maker.good.is/projects/queerhomelessonstage

Our budgets are extremely lean, and so we really need this grant to be able to launch this program and support this underresourced community. And it's so easy to help.
  • SHARE! Please post the following on your Facebook page or Twitter!
Please VOTE NOW to help give $5000 to launch this program to develop theatre by homeless people in NYC! http://goodart.maker.good.is/projects/queerhomelessonstage
  • FORWARD! Please send this blog to your colleagues, friends and family to spread the word.
Help us spread the word and win!

Brandon and the QEJ and Forum Project Family!
