This year, we have partnered with YouthLink. We will be collecting donations of new underwear and boxers (boxer briefs only), bras, and binders for teens experiencing homelessness. Collection boxes will be in the main hallway.
LGBTQ Youth experience high rates of homelessness. As bi+ people we all too often come to understand discrimination, alienation, and struggle. We hope that this clothing drive partnership can help teens in a time of great struggle, with no strings attached. YouthLink seemed like a great partner for us with our focus on including youth in this year's conference. We hope that BECAUSE & BOP can be a "home" for more and more people and that we can build bridges of resources to assist bi+ people in all times of life, even if that includes times of homelessness (as it often can for many of us).
Please bring some new clothing for our donation drive to benefit homeless teens. And check out their site and see about making your own donation drops to YouthLink. If you have any questions, please contact AL firstname.lastname@example.org.
