TGI Justice Project is a group of transgender people—inside and outside of prison—creating a united family in the struggle for survival and freedom.
We work in community relationships to fight against imprisonment, police violence, racism, poverty, and societal pressures.
We seek to create a world rooted in self-determination, freedom of expression, and gender justice. We cultivate love for one another, and love and freedom for all people.
TGIJP centralizes the wisdom and leadership of TGI prisoners and former prisoners, especially trans women of color.
Throughout its history, TGIJP has defined its role as a bridge organization that makes visible the leadership of transgender women to many different justice movements. We work towards transforming conditions that gravely impact our lives, but in which our voices remain largely silenced. Our programs tackle root-causes of violence and oppression by both building leadership, and caring for our communities.
Specifically in 2016 we will expand our leadership development and re-entry support program. We will do this through increasing the opportunities and tools offered in our membership empowerment retreats, and building a strong infrastructure to further help individuals in their re-entry process in the Bay Area. We are exploring the creation of an intergenerational organizing program for TGI members who have aged-out of youth support programs, but are still at a high risk for being targeting for discrimination and policing. These exciting goals of building on our already strong and vibrant programs and opportunities will help stregnthen our mission, and provide much needed services to our communities.
Our key programs focus on movement building with concentrated areas of work including Prisoner Support and Peer-Legal Services/Advocacy for currently incarcerated transgender women, Leadership Development and Re-Entry Support for recently released and formerly incarcerated transgender women, and Alliance Building with other organizations working for prisoners’ rights and gender justice.
TGIJP works in both directions, into the community and into the movement organizations alienated from the community, in order to build trans power for social justice.
