Across so-called Australia, disabled people continue to be oppressed, thrown into poverty, prisons, institutions, and regularly denied the medical and social care needed to survive. This struggle is only amplified for Bla(c)k, Brown, Queer and other multiply marginalised disabled people, with many of us subjected to ongoing violence.
This is a national mutual aid fund to provide support to marginalised disabled people.
For many of us, getting the financial and material support to afford surgery, medication, mobility aids and put food on the table is a matter of life or death. Right now, we are URGENTLY fundraising for a life-saving surgery for a disabled Blackfulla. Once we are able to support our friend to get surgery, we hope to expand this fund to support others in our community.
This mutual aid fund is facilitated by the Australian Disability Justice Network. All funds are subject to accountability by our collective.
