Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice and Mama Cash are pleased to launch the State of Funding for LBQ Movements global survey<https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8ZH58SZ>, available in English<https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8ZH58SZ>, Spanish<https://es.surveymonkey.com/r/9XK3WN8>, French<https://fr.surveymonkey.com/r/2BWCSYF>, and Russian<https://ru.surveymonkey.com/r/2HW27DW>! There is very little information available on the funding priorities, needs, and challenges of LBQ groups, organizations, and networks. Participation in this survey will help generate this data and allow organizations to make the case for more and better resourcing for LBQ communities. The survey is anonymous and will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete.

Astraea and Mama Cash are collaborating with Feminist Solutions towards Global Justice (FemJust) on this survey. If you require assistance to complete the survey, please contact Linda Saleh at linda at femjust.com<mailto:linda at femjust.com>

Please take the survey<https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8ZH58SZ> by 16 November 2018.
