National Strategic Program Coordinator
The Marsha P Johnson Institute
Full Time Position

Who We Are

The ​Marsha P. Johnson Institute (MPJI)​ protects and defends the human rights of ​BLACK transgender people. We do this by organizing, advocating, creating an intentional community to heal, developing transformative leadership, and promoting our collective power. We intend to reclaim ​Marsha P. Johnson ​and our relationship as ​BLACK ​trans people to her life and legacy. It is in our reclaiming of Marsha that we give ourselves permission to reclaim autonomy to our minds, to our bodies, and to our futures. We were founded both as a response to the murders of ​BLACK trans women and women of color and how that is connected to our exclusion from social justice issues, namely racial, gender, and reproductive justice, as well as gun violence.

We invite members to learn about who Marsha P. Johnson was while exploring themselves as well. MPJI seeks to eradicate systemic, community, and physical violence that silences our community from actualizing freedom, joy, and safety.

We were created to elevate, support, and nourish the voices of Black trans people. Our community is made up of BLACK trans people and those committed to undoing white supremacy in all its forms. Our space is intended for the sole purpose of bettering the BLACK trans community across the diaspora.

We believe that Black people are the future. We are committed to this organization always being led by the most radical BLACK trans people whose imaginations exist beyond the confines of the state. We invite all qualified BLACK trans people to apply to be a part of our passionate staff.
