The NJNP Collective has been a vital resource to DC's Trans and Activist Community and currently has nine long term trans tenants, many of whom lack access to stable employment and need our help in order to remain in the district near vital resources and work.  No Justice No Pride (NJNP) additionally provides temporary housing, and sometimes in rapid response situations; for 5 to 20 young trans and queer people lacking stable housing a night at the collective or throughout our local network.

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.

We started a pilot program (The Organizing Training Project) to develop the organizing and leadership skills of Trans folks of color most directly and disproportionately impacted by violences resulting from the criminalization of sex work while providing them stipends as an alternative form of employment to sex work.

After struggling to find a new place with more space over the summer the sisters of the NJNP House Collective have found a new home and need your help make sure the Collective can thrive as its residents fight for trans rights and lives, while providing mutual aid and support to fellow community members. This aid includes temporary housing; helping folks find jobs through cover letter and resume writing assistance; helping folks change their names and gender markers on their ids; providing meals; and working with partners to respond to state terror that keeps so many trans and nonbinary folx from thriving.

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 the House, including rent, utilities, food, and a House Manager.

Donations can be made through the FB fundraiser, through Venmo with the #TransCollective to @NJNP-DC or directly through njnpdc.org/donateContribute monthly to the overall housing costs for the NJNP Collective!

About No Justice No PrideNo Justice No Pride is a collective of organizers and activists from across the District of Columbia. We exist to end the LGBT movement’s complicity with systems of oppression that further marginalize queer and trans individuals. Our members are black, brown, queer, trans, gender nonconforming, bisexual, indigenous, two-spirit, formerly incarcerated, disabled, white allies and together we recognize that there can be no pride for some of us without liberation for all of us.

About NJNP’s Trans Justice Program: Since its inception The Trans Justice program has been involved in coalitions around Decriminalizing Sex Work and Fare Evasion as well as other community safety oriented coalitions. Over the past year we've adjusted more and more to focusing on Emergency Rapid Response Support and mutual aid for TPOC: including housing, emergency care support, fundraising, legal support, and employment help.

About The NJNP Collective: Violence against sex workers often go unreported and unaddressed. Homelessness greatly exacerbates the violence an individual can experience as well as the dependency on the sex trade itself. We know this well at the NJNP Collective — which was created as an intentional community home for Trans current and former sexworkers in search of safe housing… read more
