On Thursday, March 28, 2013, FIERCE mobilized to pack the court for Floyd v. City of New York as part of Communities United for Police Reform (CPR). FIERCE along with the Audre Lorde Project, the Anti-Violence Project, Make the Road NY and Streetwise & Safe held a press conference and rally outside the courthouse to lift up the experiences and voices of LGBTQ communities who are also impacted by police profiling and discriminatory policing practices!
The Bowl-a-thon is a youth-organized grassroots fundraising event that brings together over 150 community members to raise $32,000 to support FIERCE, dress in fantastic costumes, win amazing prizes, and party for social justice! This is FIERCE's most fun and important grassroots fundraising event and we can't do it without you! Don't miss a moment!
