July 2017


Recognizing the continued marginalization and violence that hurts and kills trans people - especially trans women and especially trans women of color - we began a campaign in July 2017 with a public statement on violence against trans women of color in DC, call-in day to the MPD, and rally and march to fight for against transmisogyny and help protect and support trans people in the District of Columbia - the city with the largest recorded per capita population of trans folks in the U.S. In 2017, a year with the highest identified number of trans folks killed, we wrote a petition that we’re still circulating that’s gained more than 1,000 local signatures.
