This episode of Organize Your Butterflies features a moving conversation between Elle Hearns, the Founder of the Marsha P. Johnson Institute (MPJI), Alejandra Y. Castillo, CEO, and Saida Agostini, Director of Growth and Expansion both of YWCA USA.
In the one year since founding the MPJI, Elle has formally created a space for Black transwomxn to find community, resources, and total celebration of their identity. Honoring the legacy of Marsha P. Johnson herself is something that Elle has found through her career as an organizer and a tradition she is proud to carry forward. The YWCA network is proud to stand in collaborative solidarity with MPJI to elevate the voices of Black transwomxn!
