Dear GAPIMNY members,
GAPIMNY is focused this year on solidarity and mutual aid. By organizing GAPIMNY’s community, we’ve raised thousands of dollars for mutual aid and to strengthen the organizing capacities of partner organizations.
- $2,160 for the Transgender Emergency Fund 101 (including GAPIMNY’s match of $1,000) organized by Lorena Borjas, a beloved member of the Queens’ trans Latinx community who passed away on March 30th due to COVID-19.
- $1,245 for CAAAV’s #CancelRent Fund (including GAPIMNY’s match of $500). CAAAV’s #CancelRent Fund supports their organizing of working-class Asian communities in Chinatown and Queensbridge to cancel rent and fight for housing justice.
- $602 for Caribbean Equality Project’s COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund (including GAPIMNY’s match of $302). Caribbean Equality Project’s COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund supports black and brown queer and trans Caribbean people in NYC.
For the next round, we will raise funds for Black-led queer and trans organizations.
Thank you for your support throughout the years.
GAPIMNY Steering Committee
