A grant to the Social Good Fund will support its fiscally sponsored project, the Marsha P. Johnson Institute, which protects and defends the human rights of Black transgender people by organizing, advocating, creating an intentional community to heal, developing transformative leadership, and promoting its collective power. Founded both as a response to the murders of Black trans women and women of color and their broader exclusion from social justice issues, the organization is grounded in the legacy of Marsha P. Johnson, encouraging its membership to reclaim the autonomy of trans minds, bodies, and futures.
