NEW YORK CITY

The NYC chapter started its current iteration in February 2019. We have about 9 outside organizers and 250 inside members/leaders. We collaborate with Sylvia Rivera Law Project, Anti-Violence Project, and more in pursuit of our abolitionist mission.

Our work towards the abolition of the prison industrial complex is rooted in the experiences and wisdom of currently and formerly incarcerated people. We are outraged by the specific violences of the prison industrial complex against LGBTQ people, and respond through advocacy, education, direct action, and community building. Our penpal program links free world allies to incarcerated queer and trans folks as a powerful resistance to the violent isolation of the prison system.

Once there were no prisons. That day will come again.
