After Russia invaded Ukraine, we received calls for help from Unit’s Ukraine-based members who needed assistance in relocating or getting by. We decided to provide them with financial aid using the donations of Unit’s members on Steady. To make this effort sustainable and expand it, we are calling on people who relate with the causes of LGBTIQ+ journalism and activism to become new members.
After the donations are collected, they are transferred directly to journalists and activists in need. The funds help to cover their daily expenses, whether they need to relocate, to recover from leaving the country, or simply to get along.
