DROM NYC's hard working 30 or so full time, part time and independent staff, have been hit hard. Today, we turn to you to ask for your help to keep DROM afloat in these times of uncertainty. 100% of revenue from this campaign will funnel back into keeping our staff hired throughout the closure. 

Q-Wave leadership has been thinking of ways we can best support and uplift folks in our community who’ve been left particularly vulnerable because of COVID-19. So until Wednesday 3/25 at 11:59 PM, we’re putting together a COVID-19 Emergency Fund specifically for these folks.

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the particular vulnerability of queer, transgender, non-binary and/or intersex Black, Indigenous folks and other LGBTQI+ people of color (QTIBIPOC folks). Realizing a need for mutual aid for our communities at this time, Amita Swadhin launched this fund on March 14, 2020.

If you’d like to be a recipient of these funds, please fill out this short Google Form. Queer/TGNC API recipients are highly encouraged to apply, though this is not a requirement for receiving funds.

This spreadsheet includes local and national mutual aid resources for the U.S., tips around organizing, resources for kids and teens, self care/mental heal resources, and more.

This document includes a list of existing campaigns and mutual aid projects organized by international, national, and by U.S. state.
