Imara Jones—whose contributions to media and social justice have won Emmy and Peabody Awards—is a journalist, intersectional-news producer, and creator of TransLash a multi-episode series about what it is like to be trangender, especially a trans person of color, at a time of social backlash.  The series works to humanize the lives of trans people in order to create empathy and save lives. TransLash was a feature of The Guardian’s coverage of the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, and will expand to new platforms in 2020. Imara is currently a Soros Equality Fellow.
