Trans Liberation Tuesday

[TRIGGER WARNING: MURDER, TRANSMISOGYNY, HATE CRIME]

Today is a national day of action to protest against the violence against trans people, especially trans women of color, in the U.S. 19 trans women have already been deliberately and brutally murdered in this country and they're undoubtedly all hate crimes. There are protests happening in D.C., Houston, Dayton, Nashville, Chicago, Columbus, Tacoma, Portland, etc. #TransLiberationTuesday is happening now on Twitter.

The numbers keep growing. Last year it was 14. It's not even September this year and we're at 19 after three were killed within 24 hours. This is a crisis.

Show up to a protest if you can. Post about it on social media if you can. Cis people especially.
