Solidarity Supper - December 19th in Turner

The JED Collective, bang@rang, Faire-Op invite you to the 7th Annual Solidarity Supper to benefit: Outright L/A (Lewiston) & Treatment Action Campaign (South Africa)

Please join us this Saturday December 19th @ Turner Center Grange (directions at www.jedcollective.org)

5:30 Harvest Supper
6:30 Music, Performances and Auction
  • Music by Ethan Miller & Seth Yentes (riotfolk.org/?m=katebovermanethanmiller)
  • Wiffletree -Seth & Tyler Yentes- (myspace.com/whiffletreemusic)
  • Evan Greer (riotfolk.org/?m=evangreer)
Every year the Solidarity Supper raises money for important organizations in our community and in the global south. This year we are raising money for Outright L/A (based in Lewiston) and Treatment Action Campaign (based in South Africa).

In a climate in which open discrimination against queer and trans members of our community is still welcomed and accepted we feel it is necessary to show support for the one organization working with queer, trans, questioning, and allied youth in Lewiston/Auburn.

Outright L/A supports queer, questioning, and allied youth through working with local GSAs to offer support in schools and by offering weekly "drop-in" hours on Friday nights - where youth have a safe space to watch movies, do arts projects, or just hang out with one another.

Treatment Action Campaign, based in South Africa, has the vision of A unified quality health care system which provides equal access to HIV prevention and treatment services for all people. Their mission is to ensure that every person living with HIV has access to quality comprehensive prevention and treatment services to live a healthy life.

Please help support these incredible and important organizations!
