We’re starting an LGBTQQI blog about housing, youth homeless and other related issues, and we’d love to hear from you! Youth *highly* encouraged to participate (we can offer transit passes and other perks as incentive)!

Send us an email at projectfiercechicago@gmail.com if you’d like to contribute! Here are some topical ideas:
-Why you think PFC is important or why you support us
-Blog about a PFC event you attended
-Write an essay about a current event or news article you read
-A poem or piece you wrote about housing in Chicago, why you think folks experience homelessness in Chicago, or how you’d like to see that change or how you are a part of that change, or your own experiences
Thank you!
