Help Aya With Their Survival Fund!

Hey all, you may have seen this fundraiser for Aya, a queer trans, two-spirit woman, before. It was originally a fundraiser to help her on their journey towards organizing autonomous and sustainable communities through their nomadic lifestyle. While she still fervently maintains this vision, unfortunately, life has sent their way a series of tribulations that have forced her to put said mission on hold. This past June Aya's car broke down, and the repairs on it are quite costly; around $4,000 total. This is very much a problem as Aya had been previously living nomadically, as such their car was in many ways their house, therefore they have been forced to take up temporary residence in an area that is hostile to severely marginalized individuals such as herself. With this, she has had difficulty acquiring a sustainable system of support, both in terms of material resources as well as acceptance of her personhood. She has tried repeatedly in this new location to find work, however as previously mentioned the hostility has resulted in barriers to mobilization at every turn. As such we have come together to ask folks for help as she navigates this tumultuous period of her life, so that she can not only resume her ambitions for a brighter future for all but also she can find a place where she is supported in all facets. Any support anyone is willing to extend is appreciated. To be clear, this is currently an emergency fund purely for Aya's survival. Again, any and all help is beyond appreciated.
