sonia: US Flag with In Our America All People Are Equal, Love Wins, Black Lives Matter, Immigrants & Refugees are Welcome, ... (tikun olam)
[personal profile] sonia
This month I made a donation to Outside In because of the assault on trans rights going on everywhere. Their mission statement is, "We help homeless youth and other marginalized people move towards improved health and self-sufficiency." Their website also says, "The point of return." They have a low-cost medical clinic, and I associate them with being very trans positive and helping trans kids who end up on the streets (which is a lot of them).

I'm finding that I want to keep my donations local, or at least make them to smaller local orgs that won't be the first organizations people donate to nationwide.

I also put up a yard sign from nwgsdpdx, which I had guessed was NorthWest something something Portland, but turns out, fabulously, to stand for Nasty Women Get Shit Done (in Portland). Their yard sign sales have raised over $10,000 to subsidize rent for incoming refugees as well as making the neighborhood look firmly welcoming. I was more than happy to fork over $10 and carry my sign home.

Free downloads of their great graphics available in 8 languages so far. Graphic based on a design by Jason Maxfield.
