QUEER SURVIVAL ECONOMIES
BUILDING POLICY & PROGRAMS TO MAKE VISIBLE THE IMPACT OF THE RECESSION ON LGBTQ COMMUNITIES
Queer Survival Economies is an innovative new initiative from Queers of Economic Justice that creates both policy and organizing initiatives broadly and intentionally connecting economic justice and the impacts of the recession on LGBTQ bodies and lives. Integral to this work is centering the most marginalized bodies at the core of the initiative: immigrant, HIV positive, transgender & gender non-conforming, low-income, homeless, elders, queer workers and people of color. Queer Survival Economies also builds intentional cross-community alliances, specifically with labor, economic policy think tanks, immigrants rights organizers, and the Excluded Workers Congress. When fully developed, the Queer Survival Economies Initiative will help to realign the way in which organizing happens and is framed in the queer and trans community.
