Hope everyone had a good Pride Weekend! In honor of LGBT Pride Month, the “love” charity we’ve chosen to feature this week is the Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice!
Founded in 1977, Astraea is currently the only foundation in the world solely dedicated to supporting LGBTI organizations in both the U.S. and internationally. In particular they seek to address the lack of funding for lesbians of color, as well as the overall need for support for all lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transponders, and interest people. They work specifically for social, racial and economic justice across the globe, and seek to educate the community at large and build a new community of allies who can help to enact change.
