Solidarity with GiGi

GiGi Thomas is a Black trans woman and a human rights advocate incarcerated in a Maryland prison for the actions she took to survive in October 2015. As a collective of individuals and groups supporting trans and cis women and gender non-conforming people who are criminalized for survival, we stand in solidarity with GiGi and demand that she is returned home to her family and to the community that she has served for more than 20 years.

The incarceration of GiGi Thomas serves no one. Instead, it perpetuates the violence against Black women, and especially those who are trans, that is inflicted at both the state and interpersonal levels every day.

In solidarity,
