Support our Partners

Black and Pink is a nationally networked grassroots organization working to abolish the prison industrial complex while meeting the immediate needs of LGBTQ and HIV+ prisoners. It is the largest organization of LGBTQ prisoners ever, reaching 10,000 prisoners with a monthly newspaper of prisoner-generated content. (...)Black and Pink has facilitated the connection of thousands of prisoners with outside pen pals and continues to grow those relationships. Black and Pink also supports the inside organizing of prisoners as they articulate their own demands in the prisons where they are held. The staff of Black and Pink is made up, exclusively, of formerly incarcerated people while volunteers come from a wide variety of experiences including a history of incarceration as well as those who have never been arrested or imprisoned.


TGI Justice Project is a group of transgender, gender variant and intersex (TGI) people inside and outside of prisons, jails and detention centers creating a united family in the struggle for survival and freedom. We work in collaboration with others to forge a culture of resistance and resilience to strengthen us for the fight against human rights abuses, imprisonment, police violence, racism, poverty, and societal pressures. (...)We seek to create a world that uplifts the leadership of formerly incarcerated TGI people and is rooted in self-determination, freedom of expression, and gender justice. Sustain TGIJP’s work for and by TGI people inside and outside of prisons, jails and detention centers, until all our people are free.
