How We Show Up

 

when our communities are under attack!​

In April 2018, with our communities facing increasing levels of violence because of FOSTA/SESTA, NJNP doubled-down on providing Rapid Response Support to our Trans familia and expanded our Trans Justice Program to include organizing mutual aid & resources thru community support to provide housing, employment & help finding employment, access to jail and legal support, help accessing financial services, government administration services and more.

NJNP has also started a three month pilot, stipended Organizing Training Project(OTP), developing organizing and leadership skills for trans folks of color most directly and disproportionately impacted by violence resulting from the criminalization of sex work to organize locally impacted communities and lead the movement to decriminalize sex work and make the District of Columbia a safer space for trans, gender non-conforming (GNC), and gender expansive individuals and communities. 


The Organizing Training Project Pilot (OTP) is intended for community members most-impacted by structural racism, transmisogny, state violence, and other biases whose manifestations individually and structurally adversely affect TGNC communities. NJNP is supporting three organizers through this program and hopes to support more pending trainees, volunteer capacity and funding. Organizers started at 10-15 hours a week, and slowly have increased to 25 hours a week at $16 an hour. During the training period, organizers receive training and leadership development necessary for successful community organizing, such as 1:1 meetings; Communications and  StoryTelling, Movement History, Direct Action Basics, Campaign Planning, among other valuable lessons.

We saw a need to bust myths,...

We saw a need to bust myths, and build community-based support for SWAC’s goals. Shortly after, we launched the first phase of a Community Storytelling Project with 20 stories collected through surveys and small storytelling events led by directly-impacted trans community members around experiences related to Fare Evasion, Street & Public Harassment, Sex Work, Wellness, Housing, and Community Safety.  To help facilitate this, NJNP started a pilot program last spring (The Organizing...

How the NJNP Collective is responding to violence

In DC — according to the DC Trans Needs Assessment Survey, a survey released in 2015 that had over 500 trans participants in the DC Area — over 35% of the respondents reported of having engaged in sex work, with a majority those respondents being of color and identifying as trans woman or trans feminine. In the same survey 74% of respondents had been verbally assaulted, 42% physically assaulted, and 35% sexually assaulted, so it should be no surprise that when the issue of housing came up in the survey, 20% of those taking the survey reporting that they are currently experiencing homelessness, Those currently experiencing homelessness are significantly more likely to be HIV positive and half of those responded as homeless reported to rely “ informal and grey economic work for income (such as sex work). Since April 2018, with our communities facing increasing levels of violence because of FOSTA/SESTA, No Justice No Pride doubled-down on providing Rapid Response Support to our Trans familia and expanded our Trans Justice Program to include mutual aid & support and a pilot Organizing Training Project(OTP) to develop the organizing and leadership skills of Trans folks of color...
