With this year marking 50 years since stonewall NJNP wishes to honor Marsha and Sylvia’s legacies for continued trans and queer resistance against systematic and institutional forces that are killing us; with a two week long action camp at the end of May leading up to June — which for many cities on the east coast is the month we celebrate Pride. This Action Camp will prepare participants for the fight ahead in reclaiming these legacies; with priority focus to trans people of color and former and current sex workers. Our hopes are to be able to do this over a span of around two weeks, from the week of May 19th- June 3rd. The action camp will feature workshops that range from choreography and how to plan a ball to learning critical political histories, how to organize and use direct action tactics, that will all lead up to NJNP’s June Mobilization that will feature a KiKi DMV runway ball, ‘Ball 50’; a Stonewall community kickback event — to serve as an alternative to a white washed and corporation collaborated pride festival — and several direct actions that highlight the City’s neglect for issues around housing, sex work criminalization and healthcare for the trans community.
Do you have a workshop, training, skillshare etc to share with the community? We can’t do this without you! It doesn’t have to be a workshop or skillshare, it can be a healing space, a performance, an art build, film screenings, etc.
