HEARD

 HEARD is a cross-disability abolitionist organization that unites across identities, communities, movements, and borders to end ableism, racism, capitalism, and all other forms of oppression and violence. HEARD supports disabled people and others who experience ableism by rejecting disability hierarchies and rigid definitions of disability, and by recognizing deaf people as part of disability communities. HEARD works to increase our collective capacity to identify, understand, and challenge oppression through grassroots advocacy, community organizing, peer support, mutual aid, education, and research.

House of Pentacles

House of Pentacles (HOP) is focused on cultural organizing and narrative power led by and for Black Trans and Gender Non-Conforming people. HOP believes there is no racial justice nor trans justice without economic justice.

HOP launched with our founder’s Black Trans resources in 2018 with a simple mission: To train the next generation of Black Trans storytellers and filmmakers, leverage our brand to get Black Trans filmmakers paid projects in their communities, and pay Black Trans film fellows to work on House projects that further the stories of Black Trans people globally. We are Black Trans people telling Black Trans stories. We are recording our own histories, and we are making ourselves unforgettable. Our house is built on tenets of survival, creative resistance, and family. Much like the ballroom house scene we help each other survive, stunningly!
