Tonight marks the end of 2015 and our end of the year giving campaign. As we count down to the New Year, we ask that you dig deep and give big to ignite reproductive justice in the South!
Thanks to you, SPARK’s work to build and sustain a powerful reproductive Justice movement in Georgia and throughout the South is stronger than ever.Through your tax-deductible gifts to SPARK, you help us to build new leadership, change culture, and advance knowledge to ensure individuals and communities have resources and power to make sustainable and liberatory decisions about our bodies, genders, sexualities, and lives.
In 2016, your end of the year donation will fund:
- Speak Justice Take Action – We will continue the important work of making the legislative process accessible to our communities utilizing our signature queer political frame. We will host our 9th Annual LegislateTHIS!, advocating to close the coverage gap and empower our community leaders to share their stories and lobby our elected officials at the Georgia State Capitol on key reproductive justice issues. Click here to hear from participants at our 8th Annual LegislateTHIS!
- Fierce Youth Reclaiming & Empowering – As we close out the year having hosted our 5th FYRE Media Justice Camp, we will continue providing Queer and Trans youth of color with the skills and resources to generate their own media and strengthen their communities through peer support and leadership development using reproductive justice and queer liberation. Look out for the return of Kick It with SPARK in January 2016!
- SPARK Organizing Intensive – In 2016, we will kick off the 2nd cohort of our Queer and Trans youth of color and Women of Color reproductive justice, issue advocacy, grassroots organizing, community mobilization, and strategic communications training to foster the potential and leadership within our movements.
This important work would not be possible without your continued support! You help us to empower Black Women, Queer & Trans youth of color, and Women of Color to critique media, strengthen their leadership and political power, and fight for reproductive justice in the South.
