Gender Justice Leadership Programs (GJLP) include a multi-dimensional, media-based strategy to center and uplift the power, leadership, and truth of trans and nonbinary young people. Launched in January 2020, GJLP builds on the work of our first trans youth-centered initiative, the TRUTH Program, in collaboration with the Transgender Law Center.
GJLP aims to transform the GSA movement, as well as the wider LGBTQ movement, into an effort that centers trans and nonbinary youth of color.
This initiative embraces 3 bold approaches to trans youth liberation work:
- Direct youth organizing. GJLP will continue to support the TRUTH Program and cultural activism through art.
- Organizational support. GJLP will offer technical assistance for partner LGBTQ+ organizations.
- Interconnected movement building. GJLP will include new trans and nonbinary youth-centered programming to connect with the larger community.
