Miss Major: Why she kicks ass
She is a black, formerly incarcerated, woman and transgender elder, who was at the Stonewall uprisings in ’69, and became politicized in the aftermath at Attica. She has been an activist and advocate in her community for over forty years, mentoring and empowering many of today’s transgender leaders to stand tall, step into their own power, and defend their human rights, from coast to coast. 
Currently, Miss Major is the Executive Director of the TGI Justice Project (TGIJP) , whose mission is to challenge and end the human rights abuses committed against transgender, gender variant/genderqueer, and intersex (TGI) people in California prisons and beyond.
