I'm raising money on behalf of Dom Chatterjee! Donations go towards therapy & upcoming rent/bills, so they focus on caring for themselves. Support this campaign to follow its progress & share with your friends!
NOTE: We have been successfully bringing donations here through Fundly! In the event you would like to direct funds via another platform, please see the links for Dom below:
The support and preservation of Dom's work is invaluable to the greater community. It is also in need of further investment. In their own words in response to why they do, what they do - 'QTIBIPoC survival is valuable because the wisdom of the disabled community is valuable.'
Dom currently works full-time managing QTPoC Mental Health and Rest for Resistance, two online-based media platforms that provide visibility and voice for QTPoC and disabled communities. QTPoC mental health also hosts meditations and other healing events.
These projects reach more than 1/4 million people each month and offer space for learning, connection, representation, and dialogue. This is a vital resource for so many and can only continue to grow and reach more people, offering multi-city programming when the needs of those running it are met.
Currently, Dom is seeking:
The goal for this fundraiser is to offset these costs and help relieve the added stress and labor required for survival.
I am fundraising on behalf of Dom because I believe in the importance of these projects, I believe in Dom, and I believe that community care is a critical piece to liberation. Dom is asking for rest and support as they model for us how to resist capitalist business models. In order to divest from oppressive systems that target the most vulnerable, we have to collectively support and shift resources.
The goal of $7,500 is possible when 215 donors send $35. That is often the cost of one monthly subscription many of us pay for software, music, cable, etc. Even $5-$10 adds up and makes a difference. In my experience fundraising on behalf of several individuals and groups, sharing and tagging friends can make the biggest impact by casting out the net to a larger audience, increasing exposure and resulting in a higher likelihood for someone to donate or reshare.
If our values are liberation, justice, healing, and community, then our practice should reflect this. We must listen, follow, and support PoC leadership. If we care about this work and the value it brings to all of us, then we must show this with our support. What is wanted, remains. Let's keep this going.
