This section is about No Justice No Pride and our values and principles that we follow as a activist collective.
No Justice No Pride (NJNP) is a fiscally sponsored, Trans-led Community Organization based in Washington, D.C. with several state-based and international chapters, as well as state-based ally community groups. NJNP started as an ad-hoc coalition originally intended to be a weekend of mobilizations in Washington, D.C. to call attention to the longrunning, deep fissures within the LGBTQIA2S Community — particularly to fight back against the LGBT “equality” movement’s complicity with systems of oppression that further marginalize Two-Spirit, Trans, Non-Binary and Queer individuals — while building a world that affirms us all. The first planning call was held in February 2017.
Our members are black, brown, indigenous trans, queer, two-spirit, gender nonconforming, bisexual, formerly incarcerated, current and former sex workers, disabled, and white allies. Together we recognize that there can be no pride for some of us without liberation for all of us.
No Justice No Pride operates thru aggressive Digital and Online Organizing Campaigns, breathtaking Art and Visuals, and Organizing and Supporting Relationships.
NJNP has a shared model of decision making and governance with roles filled from all levels of NJNP's Structure. Outside of the Board and Advisors, NJNP is mostly functional through its Steering Committee. Each Steering Committee member is responsible for leading and being accountable on a role that supports NJNP's DNA & Vision. Decision making embedded throughout process with pieces of centralization and decentralization.

Note: This are not hard and fast commitments or positions. Lines can be blurry, and we adapt to change. This is meant to inspire thinking about radical political ideas, not stifle them.

When staying at a NJNP House you will be expected to follow the guidelines laid out below as well as any additional guidelines that are put in place by a house manager, or by a consensus based decision making process involving all housemates.
Please ask for a list of additional guidelines, if any; at your current location, if no one has advised you.
The guidelines listed here are the bottomline and for the safety of our houses cannot be optional.
