A Note from Our Leadership Team 

In less than three weeks, SOEquity went from a small but mighty group of volunteers to a fiscally-sponsored organization with long-term goals to make Southern Oregon a welcoming and safe place for everyone. Because we are a new organization, however, our Leadership Team is entirely made up of volunteers. We recognize that this is not a sustainable model and are working to secure the long-term funding we need to operate. Moving forward, we are asking our supporters to consider marking their donations as “General Support” so that we may begin to use some of our funds to pay our leadership team for the around-the-clock work they are doing to keep this organization afloat.

Our leadership team is made up of entirely non-binary femmes and womxn who identify as BIPoC, Latina, LGBTQ, and/or low-income with 80% being BIPoC, 60% being Black, and 60% being mothers to young children. We have developed an estimated budget to properly run our organization and are committed to being as transparent as possible as we move forward in our work. The best way for us to keep this commitment is to have the funds to allow our Leadership Team to do this work full-time, which includes on-the-ground organizing and mutual aid as well as essential administrative tasks. Any questions can be directed to Kayla Wade, President & Founder, at
