In September 2011 justin became involved with Occupy Wall Street in its first week of encampment in Zuccotti Park in Manhattan. On October 1st, 2011 he was arrested on the Brooklyn Bridge with 700 other protesters. Following his arrest justin was mistreated by the NYPD and then decided to go public about the way he was treated and to advocate for trans people who are detained by the police.
In the months following, justin became a vocal advocate for protocols and training for police on how to respectfully deal with transgender detainees.
Have justin come speak about the occupy movement, queer people in activism, queer anarchy and what all of this occupy stuff means for trans and queer identified people!
This keynote is best for students, student groups, activist groups, community organizations.
