Coordinated FUNdraisers Weekend

Watch this space for a list of events on or near the coordinated FUNdraiser weekend, May 29-31, 2015, as we work together to support Black, indigenous, and people of color organizing and community building with Nolose! And after that weekend, check back for pictures!

 

All profits/donations (minus expenses) from all events will go directly towards funding programming, venue costs, and food for Nolose’s first ever BIPOC only day on September 4th 2015.

Events so far include:

Nolose Welcome Home!

Saturday, May 30
Brooklyn, NY
10 guests, please RSVP with your food needs and to get the address to rwidom at ymail dot com.
A former board member has just moved back in to her former apartment and started doing a *little* Nolose work after a long break. Come celebrate both, eat some nouveau comfort food, and support Nolose’s BIPOC Day! (Where “nouveau” means created to taste delicious and actually leave us feeling comfortable, given our various chronic illnesses and allergies.)
Accessibility note: The apartment is up two flights of stairs and has a cat.
