IN BENEFIT OF:

Callen-Lorde Community Health Center
Callen-Lorde Community Health Center provides sensitive, quality health care and related services targeted to New York’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities — in all their diversity — regardless of ability to pay. To further this mission, Callen-Lorde promotes health education and wellness, and advocates for LGBT health issues.

Girls for Gender Equity
Girls for Gender Equity (GGE) promotes physical, psychological, social and economic well-being of girls, women and ultimately the entire community.

GGE believes that widespread violence against women and girls of color points to deeply rooted racial and gender discrimination that must be tackled as a peace-building and human rights priority. A Brooklyn, New York-based coalition-building and youth development organization, GGE acts as a catalyst for change to improve gender and race relations and socio-economic conditions for our most vulnerable youth and communities of color.

The New York Immigration Coalition
The New York Immigration Coalition aims to achieve a fairer and more just society that values the contributions of immigrants and extends opportunity to all. The NYIC promotes immigrants’ full civic participation, fosters their leadership, and provides a unified voice and a vehicle for collective action for New York’s diverse immigrant communities.

SisterSong
SisterSong is a Southern based, national membership organization; our purpose is to build an effective network of individuals and organizations to improve institutional policies and systems that impact the reproductive lives of marginalized communities.

Opening on Thursday, January 12 from 7:00-10:00pm and on view through January 15, 2017, the exhibition invites self-identifying Nasty Women to contribute artwork to be sold for $100 or less, with all proceeds given to Planned Parenthood.
