Justice Williams


Justice is a highly experienced intersectionality consultant with a sharp focus on dismantling patriarchal masculinity as bell hooks define it.  He has been a facilitator for over 20 years and in that time has worked with colleges, universities, non-profits, businesses, gyms, and movement spaces to move "beyond inclusion” creating environments that are socially equitable for all. During this time he has facilitated hundreds of trainings that build a sense of belonging, contribute to leadership development, and highlight the importance of justice and equity within work culture.

Justice is a phenomenal public speaker and has traveled the United States and abroad as a guest lecturer and keynote speaker. As a black man of transgender experience, he interweaves his narrative while helping individuals to think critically about how intersectionality is a part of their personal experience and the importance of making social justice a daily ritual within all of our lives.

During Justice's early years, his activism focused on working to free political prisoners living in the United States, eradicating the school-to-prison pipeline, developing youth leadership throughout Boston, fighting for Trans Rights and accommodations to his more recent activism within the fitness Industry. It has been working in these spaces that gave him a deeper understanding of how to build healthier relationships across differences.  He realized that if we are not talking about intersectionality we are not moving toward liberation. 

Justice has been an artist since his youth and uses his voice to inspire and empower people to challenge unjust systems.  He is a poet, writer, author and now co-editor of his anthology, Deconstructing the Fitness Industrial Complex: How to Resist, Disrupt, and Reclaim What It Means to Be Fit in American Culture .” published May 2023. He is currently excited about his new manuscript about masculinity and healing to be published in 2025 both with North Atla
