Celebrating 3 years of WE

WE were born out of a need to include lesbian, bisexual and transgender women in Jamaica’s LGBT advocacy at the highest level. WE’ve been able to accomplish quite a lot over the years through partnerships, great sponsors and a committed team.

For the past 3 years we have worked with and for LBT women in Jamaica and the Caribbean region on various programmes and activities like:

It’s Up To Us, SEJ programme, Money Justice, Black Sauna and Legally Lit

We have also executed some amazing events like:

#HerLegacy, Orange Lights, Violence Against Women Walk and our PRIDEJA Calendar event.

All the work we do feeds directly into our mission to:

  • Increase the participation of LBT women in social justice advocacy
  • Create safe, alternative spaces for LBT women.
  • Address and reduce homophobia and transphobia
  • Promote gender equality towards the elimination of VAW

WE’re excited for the future. WE look forward to further expansion in the Caribbean region, continuing to build the capacity of our team and most of all serving and working alongside LBT women in Jamaica and regionally.

Written by WE-Change

WE-Change is a community-based organisation committed to increasing the participation of women in social justice advocacy in Jamaica and the Caribbean. WE-Change was launched on May 15, 2015 out of a need to address and respond to the 'invisibilisation' of lesbians, bisexual and transgender (LBT) women in the LGBT rights movement in Jamaica. The organisation is women-led, women-focused and intersectional in its approach to advocacy, and guided by the outcomes of the Beijing 1995 Platform for Action.
