Welcome Beloved Family,
We are over the moon to extend an invitation to join the Reclaim UGLY community through our brand new membership program! We love you and we want to create a safer, more loving, and more inclusive world – TOGETHER! Join us to participate in a healing, joyful, educational, and imaginative space where every liberatory heart is welcome to dream, heal, rest, and collaborate towards a better world with us.
Why become a Reclaim UGLY Member?
Joining us as a member will help us achieve sustainability, abundance, and accessibility in all we do and create for our beloved community. Supporting our infrastructure now will help us better show up for our community in all the ways we dream- including YOU!
- Sustainability: We are the people we serve. As an intergenerational and multi-racial staff of LGBTQIA+, disabled people with marginalized genders committed to Black femme leadership, we understand that we must center our wellbeing and give from a place of excess. Your membership will support us to move at the pace of ease, center our imagination and healing, and offer our best selves to this movement without hurting ourselves and each other in the process.
- Abundance: Your contributions help to free us from the mindset of scarcity, fear, or competition. So often, nonprofits are forced to focus on pursuing access to grants and resources that are often gate-kept by people in positions of power, and non-profit employees are overworked and overwhelmed in the process. We want to focus our energy on our mission to heal and educate, to center our creativity, and on making sure our community gets all the good magic we have to offer.
- Accessibility: Accessibility is just another way to spell love. We love each other and the communities within which we serve and participate. Your contribution will help us ensure that everyone who wants to connect with the Reclaim UGLY community can, and that people who are most frequently excluded due to ableism and economic injustice are centered, cherished, and supported to participate in a way that feels good for them.
