GenderCool JL Heinze Wed, 03/30/2022

GenderCool was inspired by the powerful, positive experience of one family. Jen and John are the parents of four, including their daughter, Chazzie, (She/Her), who proudly identifies as transgender.

In 2017, their search for positive stories about transgender and non-binary kiddos like Chazzie turned up (nearly) empty. They could count on one hand the positive stories they found that focused on Who these young people are as talented, amazing leaders.

In stark contrast, it took all of five seconds to find a tidal wave of misleading, sensational, negative content about these amazing young people.

Something had to be done. Jen joined forces with friend and mentor Gearah Goldstein, an expert on diversity and inclusion, wife, parent, and proud transgender person. Together, with five extraordinary young people and their families, GenderCool was born.

The Trans Justice Funding Project is a community-led funding initiative founded in 2012 to support grassroots, trans justice groups run by and for trans people in the United States, including U.S. territories. We make grants annually by bringing together a panel of six trans justice activists from around the country to carefully review every application we receive. We center the leadership of trans people organizing around their experiences with racism, economic injustice, transmisogyny, ableism, immigration, incarceration, and other intersecting oppressions. Every penny we raise goes to our grantees with no restrictions and no strings attached because we truly believe in trans leadership.

The Okra Project

About this Organization
Email
theokraprojectnyc@gmail.com

The Okra Project is a collective that seeks to address the global crisis faced by Black Trans people by bringing home cooked, healthy, and culturally specific meals and resources to Black Trans People wherever we can reach them.     

During the Middle Passage, our African ancestors snuck okra onto captive ships to sustain themselves and plant in the new world. Black Diasporic cooking traditions often use the okra plant for its versatility and it is often associated with health, prosperity, and community. In this spirit, The Okra Project hopes to extend free, delicious, and nutritious meals to Black Trans people experiencing food insecurity.

Marsha P. Johnson Institute (MPJI)

About this Organization

media@marshap.org

The Marsha P. Johnson Institute (MPJI) protects and defends the human rights of BLACK transgender people. We do this by organizing, advocating, creating an intentional community to heal, developing transformative leadership, and promoting our collective power.

We intend to reclaim Marsha P. Johnson and our relationship as BLACK trans people to her life and legacy. It is in our reclaiming of Marsha that we give ourselves permission to reclaim autonomy to our minds, to our bodies, and to our futures.  We were founded both as a response to the murders of BLACK trans women and women of color and how that is connected to our exclusion from social justice issues, namely racial, gender, and reproductive justice, as well as gun violence.

About this Organization

tser@transstudent.org

Trans Student Educational Resources was co-founded in 2011 two 16-year-old transgender women, as Trans Student Equality Resources. It was and remains the only national organization run by young transgender people. TSER was originally envisioned as an organization for creating safer schools through youth-led action. During our early years, much of our work focused on policy. Since this time, we have hugely expanded our efforts in scope and scale to encompass many programs and services.
