ORGANIZATION DESCRIPTION TGI Justice Project's (TGIJP) mission is to build the collective power of Black trans folks, centering Black trans women and especially those of us who have been or are currently incarcerated. We work in collaboration with others to forge a culture of resistance and resilience to strengthen us for the fight against human rights abuses, imprisonment, police violence, racism, poverty, and societal pressures. We seek to create a world rooted in self-determination, freedom of expression, and gender justice.

The personal and collective trauma of such sustained transphobic and anti-Black violence is having profound interpersonal and intergenerational impacts on the lived experiences of Black Trans Women. At the same time, we recognize that Black Trans Women have been systematically locked out of culturally affirming, empowered spaces to heal from racialized & gender-based trauma; individually and collectively. We further recognize that the mental health and social work professions have long been embedded in colonial, anti-Black, and transphobic systems of carceral control and gatekeeping. We refuse to accept this any longer. We are committed to fighting for our Freedom from Political Repression and State Violence. We believe Black trans healing is deeply personal as well as politically necessary. Therefore we must create new models of mental health and wellness that are rooted in Black traditions of resistance and collective liberation. That's why we are excited to bring on our first ever Community Healing and Resistance Program Director to build out a dynamic community healing and resistance program centering the needs and experiences of Black trans women who have been impacted by the criminal-legal system. If you believe in the brilliance and power of our Black trans community and you are committed to creating vi
