Emergency tattoo artist relocation fund

UPDATE*** Faith has closed the shop that the attacks happened in and now needs help landing safely in New York with her family ✨❤️‍Hi friends, @nickholearcade here, I’m asking for immediate aid. I’m raising emergency funds for Faith (who previously wished to remain anonymous until now)- a highly marginalized person who is no longer safe in their space as a result of multiple physical attacks in 2022. The most recent attack was and is absolutely devastating. Faith was drugged and sexually assaulted. Her body and mind were deeply harmed. The trauma and subsequent PTSD caused by these multiple attacks has made working an impossibility now for many months. She recently had surgery also and hasn’t been able to consistently rest or work for the last 4-6 months. Being a black and indigenous trans woman compounds this. Her tattoo shop is being served with eviction papers if not paid in full. Thank you in advance to all who share this campaign widely!  We are grateful to those who have donated, shared words of encouragement, and passed this along to friends and family as well. If you are unable to donate, please share and let Faith know that you are here ready to stand up and take action. She has helped so many folx for so long, organizing, creating safety plans, raising funds and awareness and at this point is asking for that same effort being directed back to her now that she is in need. Funds will be used to clear outstanding balance and provide a safe place for Ms Faith. Thank you again for all your encouragement, reposting, sharing, and donations  ✨❤️‍
