INSPIRE LOVE DREAM
Inspire Love Dream is a project founded by Ayanna Allen aka AMEA. The project is in its beginning phase and aims to launch in July, so this season we look forward to working with them and raising funds to get the project off the ground. 30% of all our proceeds will directly support ILD.
Inspire Love Dream aims to be a community resource that provides multidisciplinary tools to assist with strengthening transferable skill sets. Their approach to education and community is centered in mental wellness and sensory-informed education. Transparent international and national connections allow them to offer resources in person and virtually.

We are mothers, sisters, fathers, brothers; imperfect humans advocating for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and relatives. We strive to disrupt colonial paradigms and structures of gender oppression by providing education, space for healing, community organizing and interconnection. We amplify the voices of the silenced by empowering indigenous women and suppressed communities. We share their stories to honor those who have been murdered and suffered injustice. We believe justice originates from engaged communities, coming together across the boundaries of indigenous and settler nations alike.
Zaza VanDyke is a poc, trans femme, parent, performer, song writer and artist from Ogden Utah. You can find zaza anywhere she can be loud and proud with an instrument in hand, either playing upright bass for The BackYard Revival or playing guitar and singing her own original music. She’s the girl at every campfire and party, singing and playing acoustic guitar. In fact, you’ll be hard pressed to find Zaza without a guitar close by. Zaza’s greatest inspirations are the people surrounding her in life, who’ve pushed her and supported her music, and her love of the world and atmosphere around her.
Being a single parent and an artist doesn’t leave much room for financial comfort and some of the big changes Zaza is making for her future is not attainable alone and she is fundraising to help cover the cost of HRT and whatever she may need during this transition.

The Salt Lake Community Bail Fund posts bail for individuals in need in Salt Lake County. We work against the unjust money bail system that criminalizes poverty and disproportionately harms communities of color by helping to free our neighbors, educate the public, and work toward dismantling these harmful systems. We are committed to ending pre-trial detention in Utah, using the Community Bail Fund as a mechanism to expose the harm caused by money bail.

The Ute Land Trust (ULT) was established in 2018 by the Business Committee of the Ute Indian Tribe to assist in the healing of the deep wounds left by the injustice of the violent removal of the Ute Indian Tribe from ancestral lands in Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona. The hope is that ULT will reconnect the people of these lands by engaging with other tribes, federal, state, and local governments to partner in land stewardship and traditional conservation efforts.
Seeding Sovereignty; an Indigenous-led collective, works to radicalize and disrupt colonized spaces through land, body, and food sovereignty work, community building, and cultural preservation.
