MMJT Building Reflects on Closing of QEJ

It is with profound sadness that we learned of Queers for Economic Justice’s decision to close, based on the funding climate. The closing of QEJ is an incredible loss for social justice and queer liberation movements. As we mark this moment in time, we would like to uplift QEJ’s legacy of centering the needs, experiences and voices of queer people living in poverty.
