COVID-19 WOC , Femmes Artists Relief Fund

Dear Givers, 

This fund is specifically for women of color working artists or creatives that have been directly impacted financially in light of COVID-19. 

Whether it be performances, teaching artist gigs, freelancing, or any other creative income, many artists have had an unexpected loss of revenue without a definitive date for resuming consistent compensation. Taking into consideration race and gender, women of color have been disproportionately affected by the economic disparities that the pandemic continues to highlight. What this fund aims to do is relieve immediate needs of women of color through financial support: whether that be rent, groceries, technical device bills medical needs etc. 

As we are, in what feels like, the height of an era -- women of color artists/creatives continue to do the unimaginable work of telling the story, resisting oppression and using art to liberate our society. It is important to protect the voices that are our world's pillars, and yet, the most vulnerable in regards to  systemic oppression.  

We are asking you to contribute what you are able to, to help meet the needs of WOC artists. If you are in the position to give, please know that any offering will provide both practical and drastic help for people. No amount is too small and every penny counts towards the survival and sustenance for women of color creatives. It is because of your giving, that we can continue to carry on into our next breath. 

With sincerity and urgency, we thank you for your support during this time of need. Your contribution shifts worlds and lives that you may or may not be able to witness. We offer you much gratitude, wish you good health and hope for you, protected health. 

Thank you, thank you and thank you.

Sincere regards,
Ramya Ramana
