In June 2017, No Justice No Pride (NJNP) held a day of action and resistance in an effort to return Pride to its roots of trans and queer resistance to state violence led by visionary transgender women of color. Together with activists from around the DMV region, we took direct action to disrupt the Capital Pride Parade and make our demands heard. NJNP successfully led a night march on June 10, a march on June 11, a festival of resistance, a Queer Trans Person of Color (QTPOC) Healing Space, and we created three blockades of the Capital Pride Parade - leading the Capital Pride Alliance to restructure its Board of Directors.

These actions were covered in USA Today, the Washington PostCNNthe New York TimesThe AdvocateNPRCBSFox News, VICEBuzzfeed, The GuardianThe Hill, The Huffington PostLGBTQ NationTeleSurThe Daily BeastDemocracy Now!Mother Jones, and the Chicago Tribune.

Similar actions to take the LGBTQ movement Back To The Roots were also carried out by NJNP accomplices in NYCChicagoSeattleColumbusMinneapolis, and San Diego. Sister protests also took place abroad in MadridTel AvivLondonAmsterdam, and Toronto.
