Every month we offer an item for a raffle, and the proceeds go towards a cause that seeks to assist marginalized communities.
All proceeds from the June raffle will be donated to the Sylvia Rivera Law Project (SRLP). SRLP works to guarantee that all people are free to self-determine their gender identity and expression, regardless of income or race, and without facing harassment, discrimination, or violence. They seek to increase the political voice and visibility of low-income people and people of color who are transgender, intersex, or gender non-conforming.
About Sylvia Rivera (1951-2002)
"This project is named for civil rights pioneer Sylvia Rivera. A veteran of the 1969 Stonewall uprising, Sylvia was a tireless advocate for all those who have been marginalized as the “gay rights” movement has mainstreamed. Sylvia fought hard against the exclusion of transgender people from the Sexual Orientation Non-Discrimination Act in New York, and was a loud and persistent voice for the rights of people of color and low-income queers and trans people. This project works to continue Sylvia’s work by centralizing issues of systemic poverty and racism, and prioritizing the struggles of queer and trans people who face the most severe and multi-faceted discrimination."
