EDUCATING AND EMPOWERING BLACK TRANSGENDER AND NONBINARY FOLKS IN THE COMMUNITY

The McKenzie Project Inc. is a new Black trans-led 501 c (3) organization in South Florida. We aim to uplift Black transgender and nonbinary individuals ages 18 and up, with a primary focus on Black transgender women who are 18 to 35 years in the South Florida area, especially those who are experiencing homelessness and engaging in survival sex work.

 

MISSION: To live, learn, and participate in building community  and centering spaces by and for Black transgender and nonbinary individuals to promote entrepreneurship and innovation in order for us to become self-sufficient and flourish.

VISION: To address the barriers to joy and liberation for Black transgender and nonbinary individuals in South Florida, and we are planning to open a safe space drop-in center in the  inner-city area ( Liberty City) where the majority of trans people we serve are from.
