Positive Force is an activist collective seeking radical social change, personal growth, and youth empowerment.
Collective Action for Safe Spaces empowers people in the DC metro area to end public sexual harassment and assault. CASS leverages technology, research, and the creativity and energy of the DC community to further its mission and vision.
Support for CASS goes toward programs that make women and LGBTQ people safer now, like RightRides DC, as well as work that shifts the culture we live in, including:
- Innovative workshops on preventing and responding to public sexual harassment and assault, and organizing your community against it;
- Art activism that reclaims public spaces; and
- Survivor-led organizing to change the systems meant to serve us.
The DC Abortion Fund (DCAF) is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) nonprofit that makes grants to pregnant people in the D.C. area who cannot afford the full cost of an abortion. Founded in 1995, DCAF is the only organization in the D.C. region that focuses solely on providing this service in our community.
We face a multitude of state and national restrictions designed to deny access to abortion care. These restrictions disproportionately affect low-income people. We hope to make “choice” a reality because we believe the right to health care should not depend on your wallet.
Thirteen volunteer board members oversee DCAF’s work. The board supervises a team of case managers who staff our free, confidential, nonjudgmental helpline, and raises money for the small grants we disburse.
Leading up to IITF2 (07.30.2015 - 08.02.2015), we will represent ourselves at and host various events to raise awareness and funds for IITF. These funds help us guarantee that great bands can play and help us raise $$$ for our charitable organizations. Any funds in our coffers exceeding operating costs will go entirely to our charitable organizations. Come out and enjoy yourselves.
