The PROM Fund is open to individuals, groups and organizations that challenge the current unjust economic, environmental and social systems while working towards social, economic or environmental justice. The trust funds exists to support projects that are often unable to obtain mainstream sources of funding. We support projects and initiatives that are achieved through creative resistance, direct action, education, and community-building.

FUCK RAPE CULTURE!!
Seeking submissions from organizations to creatively and radically engage the public on "rape culture": the collection of factors that enable sexual misconduct of all kinds.
From the legal processes around sexual assault to the awkward spaces in negotiating consent, conversations are happening everywhere around the stereotypes, social expectations and gendered constructs that inform and misinform sexual exchanges. Whether we are talking about straight cis dating rituals or the disturbing rates of violence against trans people, there is a lack of tools and clarity around sex and consent that needs addressing. It’s not enough to blame the “bad apples” or alcohol anymore. It’s not acceptable to dismiss the subjective experience of others and it’s a distraction to dissect the “worthiness” of their accounts.
How will use funds from the People’s Prom to RESIST and take direct action towards change?!!
