This is Jane Project (TIJP) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that sheds light, builds community, and uplifts the lives of women and non-binary trauma survivors.


We envision a world where women and non-binary survivors experience themselves as powerful beings. We relentlessly pursue this by eliminating barriers to healing, nurturing supportive communities, and delivering trauma-informed programming.





This is Jane Project began in 2019 as a photo-activism campaign to de-stigmatize conversations around trauma, healing, and medicating with cannabis. After photographing more than 50 women and non-binary trauma survivors, we realized that TIJP needed to be more than media, and thus, This is Jane Project 501c3 was born. Now, we offer robust healing-centered programming to support our growing community of Janes while continuing to document stories of hope and healing with cannabis.
