This particular embroidery was created as a fundraising raffle auction for the 2013 Oakland production of the Vagina Monologues, which was raising funds to benefit the inspiring Communities United Against Violence (CUAV). From CUAV’s website:
Founded in 1979, CUAV works to build the power of LGBTQQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning) communities to transform violence and oppression. We support the healing and leadership of those impacted by abuse and mobilize our broader communities to replace cycles of trauma with cycles of safety and liberation. As part of the larger social justice movement, CUAV works to create truly safe communities where everyone can thrive.
PS: Do you have a social justice fundraising event that would benefit from the donation of an embroidered vagina to raffle off or sell? Get in touch & let’s collaborate!
