There is no political organization for asexuals. Sara Beth Brooks, the founder of the Asexual Awareness Week, hopes to alter this state. The ace activist revealed her plans to start one within the next five years during a Skype interview on Wednesday.
The political organization she proposes will have three goals. The first goal is to build an e-mail list. As the organization continues to grow, it will work on its second goal: training more asexual leaders and activists. The third goal is building bridges with other organization. Brooks hopes that she will be able to do mission bleeding. Mission bleeding is when an organization's core goal becomes diluted. Building new organizations
Asexual activists rely on grass-roots efforts at the moment.. Unlike gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender organizations, many asexual sits are paid for out of the owners own pockets. A large political organization will make fund raising easier. If the Asexual Awareness Week organization manages to attain 501c3 status and attain grant writing capabilities, it will make the overall fund raising efforts easier.
The organization will need volunteers, interns and staff to help with its overall goal. Even though such an organization is only in the most preliminary of stages, it can make the work already divided between AVEN and Asexuality Awareness Week easier.
