“This project is a dream made real. It’s one of the things in my entire life I’m most proud of. It’s truly an honor to work with the trans visionaries at Audre Lorde Project and the incredible allies at Forward Together, and build new ways of transforming the world through art and organizing, together. This project is an offering to all our trans ancestors who fought and died before seeing this moment, and to all our siblings yet to come who will be freer than we can even imagine.”
Audre Lorde Project
The Audre Lorde Project is a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Two Spirit, Trans and Gender Non Conforming People of Color center for community organizing based in New York City. Through mobilization, education and capacity-building, we work for community wellness and progressive social and economic justice. TransJustice, one of our core programs at ALP, is a political organizing group created by and for Trans and Gender Non Conforming people of color. TJ works to mobilize action on the pressing political issues we face including gaining access to jobs, housing, education, healthcare and resisting police and hate violence.
