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.
TGI Justice Project works to challenge and end the human rights abuses committed against transgender, gender variant and intersex (TGI) people, especially transgender women, in California prisons, jails and detention centers and beyond.
Our goal for this campaign is to get as many donors as possible!

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.
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.
In 2018, 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. Some of our work includes:
Compton's Trans Cultural District -TGIJP has a strong desire to create more safety in the district through growing employment opportunities, continuing to develop job skills trainings for our community members, the historic preservation of the places where transgender history took place for future generations. All of this is to ensure the Black trans women have a stake in the Compton's Trans Cultural District.
Re-Entry Support - Expansion of re-entry program to include restaurant management training in the future to provide more formerly incarcerated trans women of color with skills, leadership development & employment opportunities.
Black Girls Rule - In January 2018 TGIJP held national convening of Black trans women to begin developing safety strategies on a national level that will support Black trans women with & without records as well as Black trans youth. & will continue to further explore some of those strategies this year
