summer 2011

Here’s a little update on what I’ve been up to lately:

     

  • It’s official: I start at Goddard College’s Individualized MA program in August! I’ll be in a focused MA program called “Transformative Language Arts.” I’m thrilled to be centering writing and performance in my life in the next few years, and into the future.
  • Since moving back to Philly, I’ve been working as a fundraising consultant
    • at Mariposa Food Co-op I helped to raise a ton of $$ for the capital campaign through loans, donations, and member equity.  This income breakdown shows that grassroots fundraising has brought in over $500k!
    • I’ve been having a great time working with Yasmeen Perez to offer a couple of  grassroots fundraising trainings. Last weekend we led a 4-hour training for a group of Resource Generation activists who are raising money to support immigration justice work in AZ.
  • Work Hard / Stay Hard 2011 is coming up in September and there are fundraising events planned all across the country. In Philly, there’s a Garden Party July 24th and a Queer Country show (“Gay Ole Opry“) on August 6th. Also, there’s an IndieGogo Fundraising Page to bring in donations. Check it out!
  • I’ll be MCing the Milk Not Jails Full Gender Spectrum Dairy Prince/ss Pageant at Dixon Place’s HOT Festival on July 24th
  • This week I got trained on using video equipment at Philly CAM (community access TV) with the folks at Leeway Foundation. Now I can’t wait to take a class there to learn video editing software!
