On Friday December 2, there was a large fire at an artist residence in Oakland, CA. Many artists and creative folks perished, including LGBTQ youth and youth of color, and many more have lost friends, lovers, family, and cherished community.
Many artists have unfortunately had to choose between making money and making art. Therefore, many people impacted by this fire have limited resources for things like doctor's bills, mental health treatment, new computers, and a new place to live.
A number of community members are offering free or low-cost legal aid, inspections, mental health services, clothing, food, and shelter for those impacted. Here are some resource lists for you to share.
