For my birthday, I ask that you join me in raising $1,000 for National Indigenous Women Resource Center to support Indigenous survivors of rape, domestic violence, human trafficking, and related crimes. Indigenous womxn are targeted, and suffer this type of violence up to 10x more than Caucasian women, depending on the location. Romani womxn in Europe face similar types of targeted violence at similar rates, and since we it’s July, I’ve been thinking about ways to be a better ally to Indigenous communities. As a survivor of sexual assault and domestic violence, this is close to my heart. I’ve seen the way this kind of targeted violence has devastated my Romani family. I live on stolen land where the Indigenous communities are still fighting valiantly for basic rights, and that means I have an obligation to support this fight. Indigenous-run organizations are doing important work, and I admire their activism. I invite you to join me in supporting their work, no matter how small the contribution. If you can’t give, please make an effort to share this charity and amplify Indigenous voices this month. Champion Indigenous artists, writers, innovators, humanitarians, and more and share their work with me and others in your circle. Thank you!
