$5K [Nov. 28th, 2006|01:27 am]
The New Orleans Lesbian Community

So I just got elected to the co-moderator, non-hierarchical position of "power" (haha) in my feminist group at my college. And surprisingly we have around 4K dollars to blow this semester plus another 2.5-5K for the upcoming academic year, which if we don't use it, it just gets cycled back into our annual 5K allowance (We elect at the beginning of the calendar year, but receive funds at the beginning of the academic year). We've mostly spent it on food for various fun events, which is delicious, but I feel a little lacking in creative spending.

I think we're so thrifty partially due to the nature of third-wave D.I.Y.ness/the general making-ends-meet nature of the movement/the fact that only until this year (maybe last year as well), we subsided solely on $40 per member annually.

So. I'd like some super creative and activist ways to spend this money usefully. We have a bunch of restrictions on how we spend it, like we can't just give it to a charity or buy a bunch of supplies for a charity and hand it to them. We're at Tulane, a fairly big university and as this will probably be my only opportunity to see $5K go towards progressive change, especially in post-Katrina New Orleans, I'd really like to make every buck count.

Thanks very much. :)

Curtis won the Seventeen magazine fiction contest in 1992, at age sixteen, and since then her writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Atlantic Monthly, Salon, Allure, Glamour, Real Simple, and on public radio's "This American Life." A graduate of Stanford University and the Iowa Writers' Workshop, she was the 2002-2003 writer in residence at St. Albans School in Washington, D.C. She now lives in Philadelphia, and her second novel, The Man of My Dreams, was published by Random House in May 2006.
