People of Color in Publishing "is a grassroots organization created by book publishing professionals dedicated to supporting, empowering, and uplifting racially and ethnically marginalized members throughout the industry, we seek to create a safe and inclusive space celebrating and promoting diversity. Through a planning committee and network of chaired subcommittees, we advocate and foster career development and advancement of people of color (including Native/Indigenous) professionals’ work."
The Marsha P. Johnson Institute "invite[s] members to learn about who Marsha P. Johnson was while exploring themselves as well. MPJI seeks to eradicate systemic, community, and physical violence that silences our community from actualizing freedom, joy, and safety. [They] were created to elevate, support, and nourish the voices of BLACK trans people. [Their] community is made up of BLACK trans people and those committed to undoing white supremacy in all of its forms. [Their] space is intended for the sole purpose of bettering the BLACK trans community across the diaspora."
