WHY ARE FUNDRAISING SCREENINGS NEEDED?
In times of crisis like COVID-19 people with disabilities are often excluded from resources such as shelter, food, and direct help even during states of emergencies. So disability-led grassroots groups around the country are running emergency response coalitions that can provide help quickly through a process of mutual aid IF THEY HAVE THE MONEY.
WHO BENEFITS FROM YOUR DONATION?
We are focusing our donations to the mutual aid groups that are working every day to keep disabled and chronically ill people safe and alive during the COVID-19 crisis.
They desperately need money to offer online and phone support, provide masks, hand sanitizer, wipes, gloves, grocery shopping, laundry, picking up medications and in-home support. But most of all they let people with disabilities know that their communities will support them in time of need..
WHERE DOES MY DONATION GO?
80% of the money raised goes directly to keep disabled people alive during the COVID-19 crisis. We do this by sending the donations to on-the-ground life-saving groups such as Disability Justice Culture Club and many other community-led groups.
10% of the money provides disability access for the screenings, such as American Sign Language interpreters and CART (real time captioning), and support interpreters and CART transcribers who are out of work. 10% supports other impacted local community groups through Independent Arts & Media.
ABOUT: Reclamation Press
We publish books by people within diverse disability communities. We seek authors living at intersections such as disability, race, and class. We strongly believe that people living at the junctions of multiple communities create books that expand our horizons and enrich the lives of individuals and communities.
