Moments Cooperative & Community Space
Moments Cooperative & Community Space was founded in 2020 to provide queer and trans people of color (QTPOC) with physical space for community care, collaboration, and education. In 2021, the organization expanded to offer paid residency programs to QTPOC artists and writers, as well as mutual aid programs, including a community fridge.
Current co-op members Samantha Maria Espinoza, Tara Cuyos Marsden, Lukaza Branfman-Verissimo, Sophia Rocha, and Danielle Hirokane, are artists, activists, abolitionists, and educators. As well as maintain the community space and residency programs, the co-op’s members have cultivated a selection of new and used books prioritizing Black, Indigenous, people of color, and QTPOC authors, writers, and stories.
