Set to officially launch next week, Creatives4SystemicChange is an online collective that consists of designers and artists from around the world. Its mission is to raise money for organizations – The Marsha P Johnson Institute, The Okra Project and For the Gworls – that amplify the voice of the Black trans community and empower them as a whole.

Over 80 contributors including Kiko Kostadinov, Martine Rose and more have donated their pieces of work for an online raffle starting June 28. Other than fashion, additional categories include art, experiences and tutorials by recent graduates, current students, freelancers, textile designers, photographers, stylists, dancers, writers and fine artists.

Interested parties will be able to buy entries for an item for $10 USD each, while others can also enter to win an item at random for $5 USD. At the end of the week, Creatives4SystemicChange will randomly select the winners of each item. On top of that, the collective will donate 15 percent of the funds raised to Black artists in need.

The auction will commence online on June 28 and will run until July 4 at 12 a.m. PST. Head on over to the initiative’s Instagram account for more information.
