Back To The Roots — Reclaim Pride

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 were also carried out by NJNP accomplices in NYCChicagoSeattleColumbusMinneapolis, and San Diego. Sister protests also took place abroad in MadridTel AvivLondonAmsterdam, and Toronto.

Take Action - Take Action

Our struggle was not only to bring Pride, but the ‘Equality’ Movement as a whole; back to its roots. This year — as we watch Pride and Equality Inc grapple with a movement that is becoming increasingly self aware of its birthplace amongst radical trans women of color — No Justice No Pride will be mobilizing with our communities, taking direct action in DC and elsewhere to continue Marsha and Sylvia’s legacies. We are also continuing our community support projects that were founded out of necessity and inspired by acts of solidarity throughout history such as the legendary S.T.A.R. House, and the Black Panthers breakfast program

Pledge to Mobilize: 50 Years since Stonewall

As No Justice No Pride takes action to continue Marsha and Sylvia's legacies, we call on others to join us in our demands for holistic solutions based on abolitionist principles for those most on the margins in the LGBTQ Community - particularly for Black and brown trans women, non-binary, two-spirit, gender non-conforming and queer people of color; for those engaged in the sex trade, for those fleeing violence in other countries - often caused or escalated by US Military or Economic interventions and other violence, for those who are criminalized by the police and developer bought politicians, for indigenous communities fighting to preserve the Native sovereignty on unceded lands and for all the land defenders and water protectors - that target systemic forces and root causes. Join Us Whether it be your local Pride organization or another 'well intentioned allied" institution complicit in white supremacy, we call on radical anti-racist trans and queer organizers to build, organize and mobilize to truly take our movement back to the roots!
