Queer Survival Economies is an initiative that seeks to organize poor and working class people around economic justice and immigration issues, develop basic research on how LGBTQ people build their lives in both recognized work environments and alternative economies, provide capacity building and training to LGBTQ and non-LGBTQ organizations on economic justice issues from a queer frame, and create and support local and national economic and immigration policy and advocacy gains so that they include LGBTQ people.
