New York, New York - May 18, 2010 - The Audre Lorde Project (ALP) has successfully concluded its Capital Campaign, A Space for Many Movements. In June 2010, ALP will open a new Manhattan office at 147 West 24th Street, which also houses grassroots organizations FIERCE!, Queers for Economic Justice and the Sylvia Rivera Law Project. The Audre Lorde Project is a community organizing center for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Two Spirit, Trans and Gender Non Conforming (LGBTSTGNC) People of Color in New York City.

NEW YORK CITY HUMAN RESOURCES ADMINISTRATION (HRA) APPROVES PROCEDURE FOR SERVING TRANS AND GENDER NON CONFORMING CLIENTS
Apologies for yesterday's outage. Communications for ALP are now fully restored, our phone, fax and email are all working. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Our differences are polarities between which we can spark possibilities for a future we cannot even now imagine, when we acknowledge that we share a unifying vision which supposes a future where we all may flourish, as well as a living earth upon which to support our choices --Audre Lorde--
Dear Community Members and Supporters,
Over the last six years as a community we have made our voices heard, culminating over the last two days in a fax and phone blast, and ending today with approval of a new procedure for serving Trans and Gender Non Conforming clients at New York City’s Human Resources Administration (HRA). Trans and Gender Non Conforming communities, allies, friends and family have let the New York City Human Resources Administration know of our demands an end to transphobic discrimination and harassment in New York City’s Welfare system. Supporters from across the country called and faxed HRA.
