Gender Justice League is a 501(c)(3) non-profit based in Washington State fighting for a world where all people can live their lives safely, true to themselves, and free from discrimination. Our IRS EIN Number is: 47-3399375. All donations are tax deductible as allowable under Federal Law.
Our work uplifts transgender, nonbinary, Two Spirit, and gender diverse people through education, advocacy, mutual aid, and grassroots community building. GJL has played a critical role in reshaping what gender justice looks like in the Pacific Northwest through our events, campaigns, and leadership trainings.
Intersectionality, racial justice, economic justice, accessibility, inclusion, and sex positivity. We see these values as the foundation of our collective liberation.
Our work is still not done, at least not until we live in a world where everyone—across race, ability, class, gender, and sexual orientation—is free to live their lives free from discrimination, violence, and exclusion, and where BIPOC trans and nonbinary lives truly matter. That’s where you come in. Your donation, no matter how big or small, is what makes it possible for us to keep pushing the needle of justice forward.
