Biography

Kei Williams is a queer transmasculine identified designer, writer, and public speaker. A founding member of the Black Lives Matter Global Network, the aims of Kei’s work is to transform global culture from the individual into a systemic analysis of structural racism. As Movement NetLab’s Strategic Network Mobilizer, Kei has helped to develop powerful conceptual and practical tools that facilitate the growth and effectiveness of the most dynamic, emerging social movements of our time.  

As lead-organizer on campaigns such as Safety Beyond Policing, Swipe It Forward, and Trans Liberation Tuesday, Kei uses their platform to bring in the voices of those most marginalized by society — those who are queer, gnc, and transgender, and those living with mental illness. Recently, Kei returned for year 2 of the Organizers-In-Residency program at Civic Hall.

Passionate about their city – Kei invites you to check out the Black Gotham Experience, an immersive visual storytelling project that celebrates the impact of the African Diaspora on New York City since 1625.
