Join FIERCE in celebrating the S.P.O.T. Campaign!
Since 2008, FIERCE has been working to get a 24-hour LGBTQ drop-in center built in the West Village. The Our S.P.O.T. campaign has brought together hundreds of people and experienced many victories and challenges. As FIERCE shifts our campaign focus and transitions away from the SPOT campaign, we want to honor the work of all of the people who have been involved by reflecting and celebrating together.
Join us this Wednesday, December 4 at 6pm at FIERCE to learn about the SPOT Campaign, hear from members, staff, alumni and allies who worked closely on the campaign, and find out how you can get involved in supporting our current campaigns.
RSVP your attendance with Lead Organizer John Blasco at email@example.com.
Thanks for your amazing work to raise over $40,000 through the 2013

FIERCE Know Your Rights Workshops!!!!
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!
