The Marsha P. Johnson Institute is a community organization working to protect and defend the human rights of transgender and gender non conforming communities. We do this by advocating and organizing to put an end to systemic,structural,and physical violence against our communities. We are troubled to learn that there are attempts underway to define us out of existence. We’ve been working feverishly to create a community space where transgender people can define ourselves and build educational opportunities to learn about our history and to prepare for our future. With your support you can help us build a community where Marsha P Johnson is remembered but also where she is honored by continuing the work she started and popularized. The fight for trans people and our humanitiy has only just gotten underway and as long as we are being murdered and attempts to organize our existence away continue we have no choice but to prepare for the long haul. I’ve committed myself to seeing this organization through to carrying out our mission and I’m committed to getting results. I am asking you to commit to the movement that Marsha started so long ago. Let’s not allow hateful demonic history to exist when we have the opportunity to stand in our glory to evolve the work of our ancestors who are watching and demanding for us all to get it right.
