Marsha P. Johnson Institute

Marsha P. Johnson, a Black trans woman, was a key figure in the Stonewall Riots of 1969 — the police riots that gave birth to Pride.

From their website: “Power without action is useless. The Marsha P. Johnson Institute joins you in responding to unjust violence systemically, physically and structurally as it happens to BLACK transgender people. We challenge the entities, politicians, and structures that create a breeding ground for hate to grow. Support is free and it doesn’t cost a thing to offer your love, but when you become a partner, you help us employ black trans people, build more strategic campaigns, launch winning initiatives, and interrupt the people who are standing in the way of more being possible in the world for BLACK Trans people, and all people. The Marsha P. Johnson Institute is here to make those who exploit and enforce domination against our community uncomfortable. Being the champion for solutions is the legacy of our namesake and it is our goal to continue that legacy by championing solutions for BLACK people in the US, we are offering a new reality for BLACK trans people in America. Our commitment is forever. Help us make it happen.”


@glits_inc is supporting Black trans people who are leaving prison and need housing.

Gender Justice

From their website: “For 10 years, Gender Justice has worked to dismantle barriers and advance gender equity. For 10 years, Gender Justice has fought to push the law forward through our work in the courts, the legislature, and the community. See what [they] have accomplished so far.
