One year ago, API Equality – Northern California participated for the first time in Give OUT Day 2014, a national initiative to mobilize individual giving on a single day across the country to the LGBT nonprofit community. It lasts 24 hours.
Give OUT Day helps us amplify our voices, increase visibility of our work, and engage hundreds of friends, family, and allies in our cause. This year, on Thursday, May 21st, we want everyone who believes in the power of LGBTQ API oral histories to rise up and give to API Equality – Northern California.
Last year we said NO to competition and YES to solidarity. We partnered with another Bay Area group to share the Bay Area leaderboard award money in a way that felt equitable. This year, we hope to continue participating in Give OUT in the spirit of abundance and community.
We’re aiming to find 500 unique supporters by May 21st, 9PM to ensure that our community has access to dynamic, intergenerational histories. Here are some ways you can help us reach our goal:
- You can start donating today. Kick us off with a $10 pledge!
- Create a Give OUT Page with us and ask your friends or family members to GIVE $10 too.
- Join our Facebook event and tweet with us! Share with the social media world why you care about our cause. #GiveOUTDay #DragonFruit @APIENC
Thank you! We can’t do it without you.
