The Equality March for Unity and Pride is a global movement that will be brought to Charlotte, NC- the epicenter of HB2. The Equality March- Charlotte, along with our National and Sister marches, are to support, uplift, and bring attention to those in our communities who are targeted due to immigration status, ethnicity, religion, skin color, gender, sexual orientation, age and disability. We affirm and celebrate that we are a mix of diverse communities.
Funding will go to promotional print and online materials for the official launch
of House of Pentacles, a documentary training program by and for trans folks of color.
Mobilize resources to help develop cooperative organizations desired by vulnerable populations, especially poor, people of color, and sexually marginalized people. We are developing an Education and Outreach initiative to inform folks about worker/owner cooperatives, and to see what other types of co-ops are desired by our target populations, in an effort to remedy the high rate of unemployment, and general precarious experiences of queer people of color in the South.

The IFI uses evidence-based research to inform local social service organizations of potential funding objectives that will assist in: 1) reducing hardships 2) strengthening the effectiveness of HIV prevention resources and 3) optimizing health outcomes for AAMSM living with or at risk for HIV/AIDS throughout Middle Tennessee.
BeLoved's Homeless Voice (HV) project is a voter registration and Get Out the Vote campaign with a focus on those who are most disenfranchised in our system (people who are currently and formerly homeless, people who are queer/trans/gender non-conforming, people of color, and people who have been incarcerated). HV is made up of homeless and formerly homeless people and has a two-fold purpose: 1) amplify their voices in public policy decisions to that directly affect the homeless and formerly homeless community; 2) create projects that we lead that help to be a solution to the struggles we face as a community. 2 months ago, HV asked for training in voter registration believing that the vote is a powerful way to have personal and collective voice. We will hold weekly targeted registration drives on the streets and housing communities, education on candidates, Get Out the Vote efforts (flyering, rides to the polls).
