Community Organizing Fellowship
The MPJI Organizing Fellowship was created to further build the capacity of organizers in the Midwest and in the South fighting back against the murders of trans women, unjust local and national laws that strip trans people of humanity, homelessness, joblessness, and high rates of suicide. We want MPJI Organizing Fellows to have the skills to combat, soothe, and mobilize members of communities that are never considered. We view organizing as a part of our collective care, while also understanding that organizers have a great responsibility to the self and to implementing strategies that sustain us all. From holistic care to leadership development, this fellowship addresses our need to strengthen and encourage new leaders and thoughts. We want to create a world in which BLACK trans people will not have to fight exist.
