|Description of the project
|Bluestockings is a collectively-owned bookstore, cafe, and activist space in the Lower East Side. The space is collectively owned, with a focus on breaking even so that the store can continue to exist, and is staffed entirely by volunteers in a non-hierarchical model. Bluestockings members and volunteers take intentional and proactive care to nurture a space that is welcoming and non-threatening to all people, regardless of gender identity, survivor status, age, sexual orientation, race, and other identity group memberships. When Bluestockings was founded, it focused mainly on feminism; it now fills its shelves and events with topics about many forms of activism, oppression, and stories of marginalized people.
