Why this experience now?
Front liners will be protesting and driving the movement forward for the foreseeable future, and we must deliver care. We need a variety of tactics and this right here is one of many. Respite as Resistance is emblematic of the kinds of resistance work that are currently lacking in our approach. Care is essential. Pull up for us. Protect us. Care about our peace and pleasure as much as you care about our rage and rebellion.
How do I apply?
We will not be conducting an application process for Respite as Resistance. We will let our communities tell us which individuals need deep care for the sake of their healing, wellbeing, and livelihoods. We check in with nominees prior to registration to verify that we can meet all of their access needs. Click the link below to nominate yourself or a QTBIPOC front liner.
How can I help?
We raised $50K for this absolutely necessary, revolutionary work!

You can help by investing in our farming furturity project.
