About GJLP

The Gender Justice Leadership Programs (GJLP) are youth-led programs for trans and gender- nonconforming young people to build public understanding, empathy, and a movement for liberation through storytelling and media organizing. TRUTH is our first youth-led program for all trans and gender- nonconforming young people to explore these ideas. The Roses Initiative grew out of our TRUTH program and our commitment to specifically support trans girls of color.
