Feminist Emergency Service: an urgent grant intended to co-finance a trip to the Feminist-Queer Summer Action for persons in financial distress
About the group
Sisterhood Street is an informal group that regularly organizes feminist-queer summer camps (called FAL) for persons with experience of living as a woman. FAL’s program is co-created by the participants – it is filled with discussions, workshops, WenDo classes, joint cooking, and rest.
About the action
We believe that the camp is an important space, and we want it to take place and that the values that are important to us be spread among as many people as possible – regardless of their financial situation.
Persons participating in FAL usually cover the costs of their participation themselves, but this year, due to galloping inflation and price increases, many participants reported that they will not be able to pay for this event. The Feminist Emergency Grant will allow persons who need it to travel to the camp to have access to the feminist space of rest, development, and community.
Grant amount: PLN 3,000
