I am looking for information on Marsha P. Johnson the LGBTQ rights activist

+2 votes

My name is Olivia and I am a new member.  I am looking for information on the activist Marsha P. Johnson.  I have done the basic search and found her mother and father, but I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction of one of her 6 siblings or any other family.  Thank you for any help you could offer.  Olivia

Marsha's siblings are probably all alive, and are private citizens. It's outside the scope of Wikitree to put you in touch with any of them. I would recommend reaching out to The Non-Violence Project (Victoria Cruz, who was at the center of the documentary on Marsha's death seen on Netflix, is part of the Non-Violence Project). Perhaps someone there can let you know if Marsha's family would like to be contacted.
