"CULTIVATING SPACE, COMMUNITY, CONVERSATIONS AND CHANGE FOR A MORE EQUITABLE AND ACCESSIBLE WELLNESS INDUSTRY."
"In 2019 we made the transition to only use imagery that reflected the identity of our members — BIPOC, LGBTQA+, and differently bodied people. But representation in media is more than just imagery; it's about providing the opportunity to tell their own stories by amplifying their messages. So we started two new feature series on holisticism — a monthly colun with Jordi (a community member of DIW), and a monthly feature on BIPOC or LGBTQA+ healer/practitioner. We instituted a company-wide inclusion rider, meaning if we are ever invited to an opportunity to be a speaker, podcast host, subject of a fewature, etc., an equal or higher value opportunity must be pitched to a BIPOC or LGBTQIA+ wellness expert, too. We also launched a scholarship and support series for all people who cannot afford our monthly membership."

Notes

"We approach the health and rights crises faced by transgender sex workers holistically using harm reduction, human rights principles, economic and social justice, along with a commitment to empowerment and pride in finding solutions from our own community. The first issue we address is that of immediate need/crisis support for transgender sex workers, including community members from the NYC area, across the US and globally through supporting asylum seekers from our priority communities. The next issue we address is health care and health resilience for transgender sex workers. We need to address this issue because our community is hypermarginalized and has a profound need for safe sex supplies and free/low cost health to address both trans specific and holistic needs. We currently work on housing since so many in our G.L.I.T.S.’ community are without stable housing, deepening the cycle of disenfranchisement. G.L.I.T.S. also advocates and educates to ensure health, wellness and inclusion of transgender people in our society and to address the stigmatization and criminalization of trans people because of anti-prostitution/anti-sex work laws."

"Survivor’s Best Friend (SBF) is a registered nonprofit that rescues shelter animals while at the same time empowering survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence.

These expenses cover not only the cost of the animal, but also up-to-date vaccinations, veterinary exams, and spaying/neutering procedures.
SBF also funds the medical costs associated with getting adopted pets to become Emotional Support Animals (ESAs). Medical providers must write a letter verifying that pet owners suffer from a psychological disorder for which adopted pets provide relief. Additionally, we provide long-term support to help survivors and adopted pets thrive together.
We fund adoptions and ESA letters for pets across the country and help survivors of sexual assault and/or domestic violence who are able to care for an animal regardless of sex, gender, race, age, ability, religion, sexual orientation, or any other facet of identity. We believe in intersectionality and aim to be a resource for all survivors."

Notes

"Zuna Instititue is a National Advocacy Organization for Black Lesbians that was created to address the needs of black lesbians in the areas of Health, Public Policy, Economic Development, and Education."
"Our focus is community organizing, training, and networking. Zuna institute is having conversations that are eliminating barriers that black lesbian's face within the black community based on sexual orientation and in the LGBT community based on race."
"The National Black Lesbian Needs Assessment, a Zuna Institute publication, revealed that Black lesbian visibility is an essential element in the political and economic landscape. This survey brings to the forefront information from a traditionally marginalized group. This survey also highlights the needs and concerns of Black lesbians as defined by them."
