Lavender Rights Project

Faz parte desde março 2018


Sobre Nós

OUR MISSION:

Lavender Rights Project elevates the power, autonomy, and leadership of the Black intersex & gender diverse community through intersectional legal and social services. We utilize the law as an organizing principle to affirm our civil rights and self-determination. Our organization disrupts oppressive systems that target Black gender diverse and intersex communities of color and lead to disproportionate levels of poverty, housing disparities, and gender-based violence, especially among Black and Indigenous people. 

OUR VISION:

Lavender Rights Project is creating a world in which the Black and Indigenous gender diverse communities are at the forefront of liberation and recognized for our power to build. Representation matters and we are an organization led by Black trans women and femmes. By following their wisdom and nuanced understanding of community needs, we will build decolonized systems of care and support for our people.

OUR LEADERSHIP COUNCIL:

Our staff leadership council, formerly known in the community as the WA State Black Trans Task Force, is an intersectional, multi-generational project of community building, research, and political action addressing the crisis of violence against Black trans women and femmes.

Since 2019, they have been providing financial, emotional, and strategic resources for Black trans women and femmes in order to broaden safety nets & increase avenues for justice. Made up of Black trans and non-binary staff members in the Puget Sound, our leadership council guides both the vision and the day-to-day operations of the organization as a whole. Their work is integrated into every key element of LRP. As a result, WA-BTTF is now, in essence, Lavender Rights Project.
