The In Our Names Network is a national network of organizations, campaigns and individuals working to end police violence against Black women, girls, trans and gender nonconforming people.

Our Four Main Areas of Work:


  • Documenting sexual violence by law enforcement officers stationed in and around schools through a national participatory research project

  • Building responses to unmet mental health needs beyond police

  • Developing strategies for police accountability beyond prosecution

  • Building safety for Black trans women and GNC people

We celebrated our fifth year anniversary as a network working to end police brutality against Black women, trans and GNC folks! This report is a reflection of one-on-one conversations hosted by Network Coordinator Lauren Williams-Batiste with In Our Names network partners between January and March 2021 to assess our work to date and inform our structure and campaigns going forward.

Building a World Where Breonna Would Still Be Here

Check out the video of members of the In Our Names Network sharing how we are organizing to end police violence against Black women, girls, trans and gender non conforming people across the country and building a world where #BreonnaTaylor would still be here, closing out a virtual week of action called by Black Lives Matter Louisville

Check out our #SayHerName event kick off that was part of a virtual week of action organized by BLM Louisville, that marked the one year anniversary of Breonna Taylor’s murder by the Louisville Metropolitan Police Department. The video to the kickoff event for the Week of Action can be viewed here.

Your donation will go toward continuing our work documenting the ways in which our lives, bodies and rights are violated by police in order to demand justice for our sisters and siblings, and to make the case for removing police and school resource officers from our schools, institutions, and communities and building alternatives that will genuinely produce safety for all of us.
