Fundraiser for Grass Roots COVID-19 Mask Makers
This fund is to raise money for small grassroots organizations that are creating mask-sewing networks in response to the COVID-19 crisis. Many of the organizations building these programs work with employing homeless, migrant or refugee status workers in the community. With your generous support, this fund can provide supplies and/or pay laborers. SWOP is responding to community needs by offering financial support, so these organizations can jumpstart programs for sewing protective masks for frontline workers.
We’ve been working with members and allies who want to jumpstart a feminist economy by supporting networks of women and young people working to keep our communities safe. We are creating these special census design masks, which both serve as protection and also remind folks to be counted and complete the census. This process has been a beautifully collaborative experience and would not be possible without the help of the amazing seamstresses and our partners.
Together we can keep each other healthy and safe.
