Miss Major from TGIJP

Miss Major is a long-time activist in the transgender community. A sculptor, instead of working with clay, she works with people’s minds. Miss Major has worked at many community organizations and public health agencies serving the transgender community, including the Ark of Refuge, Tenderloin AIDS Resource Center, the Santa Clara Department of Public Health AIDS Program, and the San Diego AIDS Foundation. She is currently the Community Organizing Director for the Transgender, Gender Variant & Intersex Justice Project. For her lifetime of activism, she recently received the Social Justice Sabbatical Award from the Vanguard Public Foundation.

The TGI Justice Project's (TGIJP) mission is to challenge and end the human rights abuses committed against transgender, gender variant/genderqueer and intersex (TGI) people in California prisons and beyond.

Recognizing that poverty borne from profound and pervasive discrimination and marginalization of TGI people is a major underlying cause of why TGI people end up in prison, TGIJP addresses human rights abuses against TGI prisoners through strategies that effect systemic change. Thus, TGIJP uses innovative combinations of direct services and community organizing to support the leadership development and capacity building of the TGI communities, and especially of TGI prisoners and former prisoners.

Because of the profound and complex impact the prison industrial complex has had on the disabled, poor communities, communities of color and TGI communities, TGIJP operates at the intersections of race, gender, sex, class, sexual orientation, intersexuality, and ability, among others. In doing this work, TGIJP prioritizes and centralizes the wisdom and leadership of TGI prisoners and former prisoners.
