Help Jess & MoMo go to grad school!

Here's the situation: Jess is moving across the country to California to complete a Feminist Studies Ph.D. at UC Santa Cruz, and they need our help! We're raising funds for their moving costs (over $2,000) and for expenses as they settle in and look for a new job during the ongoing pandemic. They will be moving during January 2021 with their beloved cat, MoMo. 

About Jess

Jess is the most generous person I know - with their time, energy, and belongings. As long as I've known them, they've been involved in protecting and improving their communities - whether it was through Our Harvard Can Do Better, their formal job at Futures without Violence, their involvement in Black & Pink, and/or their support of a constellation of friends, myself included. In grad school, they'll be researching transformative justice and community responses to sexual violence in queer and trans communities. Now, it's our turn to give them our love and support! 

To show their appreciation, Jess & MoMo will send you a thank you note. They are also offering the following gifts:
For every $10+ donation: exclusive video of MoMo saying "hello" (worth every penny!)
For every $50+ donation: handmade resin jewelry piece by Jess.
For every $75+ donation: copyediting by Jess of a writing piece of your choice.
For every $100 donation: a mystery gift!
