EDIT Announces Black and Pink as the Recipient of the 2019 EDIT CARES Award


The Evaluation, Data Integration, and Technical Assistance (EDIT) research program is thrilled to announce the recipient of this year’s Community Award for Research and Evaluation Services: Black and Pink!

Black and Pink is a national organization seeking to bring about prison abolition and liberation for LGBTQIA2S+ individuals who are impacted by incarceration or who are living with HIV/AIDS. You can learn more about their incredible work, including organizing, advocacy, and support programming initiatives by visiting their website.

EDIT will partner with Black and Pink to create data management and visualization tools and provide evaluation-focused consulting for a new program offering a variety of housing support services with the intention to build community and create a supportive space for the implementation of ongoing programming.

EDIT CARES is an annual award founded in 2017 to support organizations doing impactful on-the-ground work to benefit sexual and gender minority populations. Recognizing that cost is often a barrier to accessing evaluation or data support services, the EDIT CARES program makes $5,000 available to SGM community organizations in the form of EDIT staff labor and expertise. Prior awardees include Chicago House and Center on Halsted.

If you want to be a part of making these services available to all who are working for the health and wellbeing of the SGM community, you can directly support EDIT CARES by making a donation to the Institute for Sexual and Gender Minority Health and Wellbeing and selecting the EDIT CARES fund, or by contacting us at EDIT@northwestern.edu.
