Taking What We Need
Taking What We Need is an informal collective of transwomen organizing to fight for the livelihood of our sisters and ourselves. We try to counter the difficulties that many transfeminine people face on a daily basis, falling at the intersections of poverty, racism, misogyny, transphobia, social exclusion, and colonial violence. Taking What We Need’s primary mission is to empower our sisters through discretionary funding and build solidarity within our community by collectively resisting transmisogyny. We organize community and social events around the city which center transfemininity and try to build sisterhood. We are always looking for people to help us organize fundraisers! Get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org or check us out on facebook; any low-income transfeminine person who wishes to apply for funding can do so through our facebook page.
A fundraiser/Stand up comedy show for Taking What We Need will be held on Sunday, July 29th 2018 at Coop Le Cagibi.
