JJ's Next Step - Salon Academy

$6,000 of $6,000 goal

Raised by 83 people in 17 months
JJ Vera inspires me. I know JJ has inspired many of you. Let's help this unique, vibrant, creative being take the next step in life. Let's help him go to The Salon Professional Academy. 

I met JJ Vera through the Gay Men's Chorus of Washington (GMCW). Of course I was immediately struck by JJ's sense of style....but JJ's energy and heart is what really draws you in. Countless friends of JJ would agree. 


JJ has both a creative and courageous spirit. Having struggled with family issues of his own, he channeled his empathy into work for the Rainbow Youth Alliance, which led to a profile of JJ in the Washington Blade  ( http://www.washingtonblade.com/2016/04/06/queery-jj-vera/)

He won't admit it, but JJ needs help with taking a big step in his life. Having enrolled in the The Salon Professional Academy, he is faced with tuition bills he cannot afford. We can help.

If JJ has inspired you like he has inspired me, together we can help him achieve his dreams.
