Vielmetter Los Angeles concludes our year-long donation pledge supporting effective change to dismantle police brutality, white supremacy, racism, and injustice. This month we are donating $1,000 to Project Q.
"ProjectQ is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded by Madin Ray Lopez. Our organization helps LGBTQIA+ youth navigate a world that perpetually tries to diminish them. Our mission is to use hair and self-empowerment as a form of social justice.
ProjectQ provides free gender affirming haircuts, self empowering workshops, food & hygiene boxes, gender affirming clothing, chest binders, menstrual products, and so much more to LGBTQIA+ youth experiencing homelessness."
