2SLGBTQ+ Mutual Aid Pod

This group was created by Trans, Two spirit and Queer people with support of the SJC in 2020, to organize mutual aid efforts during Snowmaggedon, and beyond.

Our Community Aid Fund can be availed of for help with essentials including but not limited to: food, rent, utilities, gender affirming gear, etc. 

 

Our ability to help with a request depends on how much is in the fund, which fluctuates. We will do our best to help, but may not always be able to, even though we wish we could, because no one deserves to go without necessities. 

To request help from the fund, please email us at: 2slgbtqaidnl@gmail.com

The 2SLGBTQ+ or "Queer" pod runs a small Community Aid Fund, hosts events online & in person, and connects community members to each other to build solidarity and facilitate mutual aid.

You can help make a difference by donating to the Community Aid Fund: 

If you'd like to support, you can do so, here: donorbox.org/caf2020
