So thankful for the support and resourcing that Third Wave Fund unapologetically gives to sex worker organizing!
Eternally grateful for the care and labor of everyone involved in the Sex Worker Giving Circle.
Support them here, so they can continue to fund our movements: https://thirdwavefund.giv.sh/96cd
🌹 Grantees Announcement! We’ve committed over $800,000 to sex worker-led groups in just two years! 🌹
Sex worker activists led powerful organizing in 2019, despite being targeted at every turn. But many sex worker communities must self-fund their work because philanthropy has historically undermined and under-resourced their movements. That’s why Third Wave Fund started the Sex Worker Giving Circle (SWGC) in 2018.
With your support, we’ll be funding sex worker-led organizing for years to come. AND, as a symbol of our appreciation for your commitment to this work, we’re giving all new monthly donors who sign up pre-New Year’s Day an amazing “Sex work is Work: Decriminalize Now” tote designed by friend JB Brager! http://bit.ly/donatetoswgc
As the year winds down, we’re remaking history — committing over $800,000 to sex worker-led groups in just two years. And we owe this success to both the SWGC Fellows and the twenty-three incredible SWGC grantees, who take big risks every day to fight criminalization and keep their communities safe. Check them all out here: http://bit.ly/granteesswgc2019
