Nolose is entirely community-driven, and that means we need our community to make it go. Whether you’ve never been to body positive event or have been engaged in radical fat activism for 40 years, Nolose needs your help. Here are several great ways to get involved:
Fatties building connections in their communities is AWESOME! We support local activists with advice, networking, and help in spreading the word about their events. What’s more, we provide funding to support projects that expand the reach of fat queer and trans activism.
The majority of Nolose work happens behind the scenes, so the more people engaged, the more Nolose can do! Spend a few hours a month amplifying Nolose’s presence on social media, forging connections with folks who’ve been marginalized, or coordinating volunteers. Share your talents and learn about how Nolose works!
If you want to support Nolose’s programming and financial accessibility, and spread the word about Nolose’s intersectional fat justice and rad queer and trans fat community building work, holding a fundraiser in your community is a powerful way to do it! Beginning summer 2017, we will offer grants that folks can use as seed money for Nolose fundraisers.
If you are dedicated to creating powerful intersectional radical fat space, have nonprofit management skills, and can commit 10 hours per month to the organization, we invite you to apply to join the board. We are especially looking to bring on more board members who are people of color, superfat, older, trans* (especially trans* women) and gender non-conforming, disabled, and/or rural/non-coastal.
Without your time, dedication, support, and love, Nolose would be nowhere. All the same, your cash and in-kind donations are most welcome!
