The Black LGBTQIA+ Migrant Project (BLMP)

Spreading the word about the Black LGBTQIA+ Migrant Project, an initiative housed within the Transgender Law Center. Check out this film on the project entitled: “Coming Home”.

“Through leadership development, capacity building, and organizing, the Black LGBTQIA+ Migrant Project (BLMP) addresses the ways in which our community is targeted by the criminal law and immigration enforcement system, and marginalized in the broader migrant community, and racial and economic justice movements. Housed at Transgender Law Center, BLMP was co-created and is staffed by TLC National Organizer Ola Osaze through a 2017 Soros Fellowship.

BLMP aims to reduce isolation, build leadership, and protect and defend Black LGBTQIA+ migrants from increasing attack by holding community-building events around the country, providing legal support, increasing access to services, creating regional organizing networks, and launching the first-ever survey focused on our experiences.”

Visit the website for more information on the project, including how to get involved and/or provide a donation.

I'm a Social Justice Educator and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities. "Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian" is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.
