GiveOUT Day: Solidarity over competition

May 16, 2014

Today, we choose SOLIDARITY over COMPETITION with other queer and trans people of color.  We choose ABUNDANCE over SCARCITY. We ALL deserve to get what we need, and API Equality – Northern California would not be able to do our work and build our communities without the existence and power of so many others, including our friends at Black Girl Dangerous.

API Equality – Northern California and Black Girl Dangerous share the top 2 spots for the Bay Area Leaderboard. No matter who “wins,” we will split the leadership prizes equitably.

So what does that mean?  Keep your donations coming!  But don’t let it stop you from also supporting others in our community, because it’s not a win if it comes at the expense of our own people.

Also, we can help Black Girl Dangerous reach 3rd place nationally! They are in 4th place and we have the people power to raise the voices of queer people of color on a national platform.
