A Gender Equity Network: Building Power at the Intersections

The last year has seen a growth of community organizations advocating for justice for their communities - from transgender people to undocumented immigrants to a new wave of reproductive health care organizing. But the growth of these organizations often came in response to policy rollbacks and unprecedented levels of violence, just as often as positive opportunities to advance justice. This sparked the interest of DataCenter: Research for Justice, Transgender Law Center, and Western States Center to explore how to better support local and state organizing among communities that are on the frontlines of policy and culture change for a new vision of gender equity. This report shares our analysis of the results of interviews with 40 organizations across 11 states. Our collaboration aims to put a new program into place in 2016 that will support a cross-sector, state based approach to advancing transgender, immigrant and reproductive justice through a new Gender Equity Network.
