A fund to provide reward money for information leading to arrests in bias-motivated crimes directed at Utah’s queer community was established by the Q Business Alliance. The Alliance is a group of Utah businesses owned and operated by the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender community and their allies.
The Q Business Alliance Reward Fund was started in response to a recent attack and increased awareness of violence in Utah’s queer community.
“This rewards fund sends a message to perpetrators of violent crimes against our community that we have the money and resources to fight back, track down and prosecute those who would harm our brothers and sisters,” said Michael Sanders, membership director of the Q Business Alliance and owner of Now & Again, in a press release.
The Alliance is seeking individual and corporate sponsors to fund the project.
For more information, contact the Alliance at [email protected] or by calling Michael Sanders at 801-364-0664.
Checks can be made payable to the Q Business Alliance. Please include the “Q Business Alliance Reward Fund” in the memo field of the check. Also, please indicate if you wish to remain anonymous.
The Q Business Alliance was formed in 2010 as a gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and ally chamber of commerce and is a project of QCares, a 501(c)3 organization.
