It’s my 6 month anniversary at CAAAV this week! And it’s been the wildest 6 months I could possibly imagine.
Will you donate $60 to CAAAV so we can keep taking on impossible fights, and winning beyond our wildest dreams?
I’m going to share 6 reflections in the lead up to our Karaoke Battle on May 10th, with the theme Liberate Your Wildest Dreams! To start us off, here are 6 highlights from our work this year.
In the past 6 months we’ve:
- Taken on and defeated the wealthiest corporation in the world - we kicked Amazon out of Queens!
- Brought members from Chinatown to City Hall and Albany and the streets, fighting for real tenant protections and to renew New York State’s expiring rent laws
- Hired 3 new staff, which is 150% growth for our small but mighty team
- Raised over $100k in new funding
- Knocked on over 2,000 doors in Queensbridge, talking to everyday people about the impact of Amazon becoming their next door neighbor
- And taken the time to actually celebrate our wins and our growth as a team!
Will you donate $60 to support CAAAV’s visionary, liberatory and community grounded work?
And if you want to create your own team (you don’t have to perform, but you can!) and support our fundraising on the next level, let me know ❤️
Also: I completely forgot to shout out the creators of this incredible image. much love to Cecilia Lim, Chivita Especial and Simone Satchell for modeling cultural organizing grounded in working class grassroots communities.
