TJFP’s From the Ground to the Sky tour: New Mexico

After nearly nine hours on the road–heading towards New Mexico from Oklahoma, TJFP arrived to a very warm welcome in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

While in Albuquerque we had the pleasure of sitting down with former grantees, the Transgender Resource Center of New Mexico. We enjoyed a sweet community dinner with local activists, TJFP friends and family. And of course we had to make a stop at the Albuquerque staple, Frontier Restaurant.

After saying our goodbyes, we set our GPS for Gallup, New Mexico to meet with local Navajo advocate and activist, Renae Grey.  We sat outside in sunny downtown Gallup and listened as Renae spoke of her experience working as an advocate for other Native transgender people and what it’s like to organize in a small town.

Thank you New Mexico for all of your hospitality, community support and energy you dedicate towards Trans Justice.

Stay tuned as we our share highlights from our next stop, Phoenix, Arizona!
