This chapter describes some of the emergent grassroots projects working for trans justice, examining how these projects’ demands and strategies differ from the more visible legal recognition projects and why these local, often unfunded initiatives can achieve more to alleviate transphobia than the heavily lauded civil rights “victories” emerging from courts and legislatures. The conclusion provides a view of what a trans politics whose demands—such as prison and border abolition, an end to poverty, and meaningful collective self-determination—far exceed what can be achieved through lawsuits and corporate media coverage looks like in practice on the ground.
