Community Love in a Time of Need

Post-Hurricane Sandy Update from FIERCE

In the face of all this hardship, we also want to lift up the incredible grassroots work that’s been happening to meet the immediate needs of impacted communities.  Our allies at CAAAVGOLES, and ALP have all been opening their doors these past several days to provide supplies and organize supporters and volunteers to reach out to community members.  We’re also excited to hear thatProject S.O.L.The Hetrick-Martin Institute, and the Door, are reopened as well.  Additionally, Queer for Economic Justice, located in our building (147 West 24th St.), is also open!

FIERCE is also happy to let you know that as of today, our doors are also open! We’ve amended our drop-in schedule to accommodate longer hours when possible and have pooled together some resources to support not only our membership, but our constituency of LGBTQ Youth of Color, with warm meals.  We have power.  Our phones and computer labs are fully functional.

FIERCE is located at 147 West 24th Street, 6th Fl, New York, NY.  
F, 1, E, R, C - to 23rd Street.
