Social Justice

.

Social Justice is a collective movement for freedom and liberation which includes the LGBTQ+ community & all intersecting identities. To effectively pursue liberation, we must see queer & trans* identities through an anti-racist lens, challenge the power structures that uphold all forms of oppression, and center folks whose lived experiences have been – and continue to be – erased. Engaging with Social Justice is a life long journey, but we hope the resources linked throughout this page encourage curiosity, unlearning, and a better understanding of how social identities shape your reality.
