Indigenous causes are tragically overlooked in the US and Canada. The Native Youth Sexual Health Network is an inclusive effort to provide sex education and healthcare for Indigenous youth.

Launched after the tragic Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, the Pride Fund to End Gun Violence brings LGBTQ+ members and allies together to call for common sense gun control reform.

There are so many more amazing efforts out there that are worth looking into! It's always a good idea to research local efforts in your community as well. And if money is tight, it still helps to familiarize yourself with these causes, and spread the word about them!
