Claim Our Space Now is a New York City based and Black, Queer and Immigrant led, fiscally sponsored nonprofit organization. We were founded in the wake of the uprisings in June of 2020 to build and mobilize community power through programs that make activism accessible to all through our three tenets: Inform, Inspire, Speak Truth to Power. As an intersectional coalition, we act as a multimedia resource online and on-the-ground to provide aid and empower the Black community.
Our mission is ritualizing community care and action to dismantle white supremacy and save all Black lives. We build and mobilize power by making multimedia education, grassroots organizing, and consistent community care accessible.
ABOUT CASTING BY THEM
Casting by Them is run by Andrew Fem (they/them) - a trans non-binary and multi-lingual casting director, college showcase consultant, community care organizer, and artist based in NYC. In casting, they work in television, theater, film, and whatever other medium you need. They are interested in united liberation thru identity-conscious casting.
They believe in equitable access to all opportunities and have amassed a following on Instagram by using their platform to demystify the casting process thru providing FREE practical tips to performers on how to go about the audition process, as well as explaining behind-the-scenes parts of the process that often confuse performers.
They are a passionate advocate for authentic representation of the LGBTQ and Deaf communities. Their approach to community care and organizing (and also most things) is best summed up by Priya Parker quoting her mother’s approach to life - her mother would ask herself: What is it I know how to do? Where is the need? and How can I help?
