About NJNP Collective Housing

Nov 10, 2019 1:38 PM

### **About** The NJNP Collective has been a vital resource to DC's Trans and Activist Community and is one of the few places in Washington DC providing intensive housing support to displaced Trans people, and in particular to those over the age of 24. Started by No Justice No Pride in April 2018 as a response to the increased criminalization and violence of Trans Sex Workers caused by the passage of FOSTA / SESTA.  The NJNP Collective is currently supporting a number of Black & Brown Trans Women ages 18 and up with long term and transitional housing, many of whom lack access to stable employment and need our help in order to remain in the district near vital resources and work. NJNP additionally provides temporary housing, and sometimes in rapid response/emergency situations for as many as 50 people a night at our safe houses or thruout our larger DC Movement network. All without any government funding or support and is completely community supported.  ``` <div class="w-100 py-1 bg-primary"></div> ``` We know that in order to center those most on the margins requires us to support each other and our communities💕♥, to keep one another safe, fed, and housed as we fight for a world that affirms us all, and we know that we can't do that without you! All funds raised will be used to help cover the costs of each House, including rent, utilities, food, and a House Managers. ``` <a href="https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?u=17024483" data-patreon-widget-type="become-patron-button">Become a Patron!</a><script async src="https://c6.patreon.com/becomePatronButton.bundle.js"></script> ``` Donations can be made by [becoming a patreon][1] or contributing to the following: [Our Website][2] | [Paypal][3] | [TeeSpring][4] | [Facebook Fundraiser][5] [1]: https://www.patreon.com/nojusticenopride [2]: https://www.nojusticenopride.org/the_njnp_collective [3]: https://www.nojusticenopride.org/paypal [4]: https://teespring.com/stores/nojusticenopride [5]: http://njnp.house/donate
