This year, Ladyfest Atlanta 2015 was proud to partner with the Solutions Not Punishment Coalition! While all three days of Ladyfest weekend were free and open to the public, we took donations throughout the weekend to benefit SNaP Co and raised over $1,600!
If you were unable to attend the festival, but still want to donate to SNaP Co. you may do so by clicking here.
The SNaP Coalition is working to build power among those who are specifically targeted by the Atlanta Police Department – especially trans and gender non-conforming people of color, and formerly incarcerated people. They seek to transform the way the City of Atlanta crafts and implements its policies, practices and laws related to street level sex work. Drawing from evidence-based best practices around the country, SNaP Co is fighting for policies and laws that utilize treatment programs, services, and opportunities as a response to survival sex work, not jail time. Their policies emphasize holistic community services for people including job training, educational programs, health care, housing, etc.
