Woman 2 Woman Seeks Community Support

BY BTL STAFF

Woman 2 Woman, facilitated by Sharron Fincher of LGBT Detroit, provides women who self identify as lesbian or bi-attractional a safe space to discuss issues specific to women. Additionally, Woman 2 Woman provides the lesbian and bi-attractional communities a safe space to discuss, divulge and learn. Also, to engage in self healing and sisterhood through open, honest dialogue and guided activities.

In addition to safe, monthly meetings, Fincher also co-facilitates a weekly discussion group with Wayne County Sexual Assault Forensic Examiner (WC SAFE) at Naomi's Nest in Highland Park. This group offers comfort and resources to the clients there who identify as bi-attractional or lesbian and are survivors of sexual violence and drug addiction.

Woman 2 Woman is asking 100 people to give $25 towards programming that supports African American women, bi-attractional women and lesbians. Fincher said the group aims to raise $2,500 for one-year of important programming by Aug 18.

Donations can be made online at http://lgbtdetroit.org/donate. Checks, made payable to LGBT Detroit, can be mailed to LGBT Detroit c/o Woman 2 Woman, 20025 Greenfield Rd., Detroit, MI 48235.

Donors will receive recognition as a program supporter, a letter supporting the tax-deductible gift and the honor of knowing they are participants in making sure that women of this community can continue to have a safe, brave space to meet and discuss the challenges and achievements within this community.

"It has been a pleasure facilitating this group and I am excited about the growth we have made in this short period of time as well as the growth that we will experience in the future," said Fincher.
