We are a collective.
Prism Community Collective was developed with the idea that we are stronger when we come together. As a collective, we can amplify our voices, advocate for change, create safe spaces, and provide essential services and resources for the Colorado Springs LGBTQIA+ community and especially those impacted by the attack on Club Q. This is the first step toward a more inclusive and empowered community.
We believe that people and communities are the experts on what they need in times of crisis. Government agencies and large funding institutions can be supportive to long-term efforts, but may struggle to meet the immediate needs of those impacted in a timely, responsive manner.
Meeting immediate needs works best when resources are put directly into the hands of those who need it most. If you’d like to support survivors and the families of victims directly, please donate via the link below to our friends at Bread & Roses Legal Center’s Queers4Q mutual aid fund. Your funds will go directly into the hands of victims and survivors of Club Q.
