Title (Dublin Core)

The average life expectancy of BIPOC trans women in North and South America is 30 - 35 years old

Description (Dublin Core)

The average life expectancy of BIPOC trans women in North and South America is 30 - 35 years old. In just the last week, six Black trans women were found dead in the US. Say their names: Bree Black (27), Shaki Peters (32), Draya McCarty, Brayla Stone (17), Merci Mack (22), and Tatiana Hall (22). BIPOC trans lives under the constant threat of violence + murder. We need to protect trans lives, speak out against these killings, and end the systematic devaluation of trans lives in our society, culture, and politics. ⁣

Here are just a few orgs to get involved with and stay informed:⁣
@transjusticefp - a community-led funding initiative to support grassroots, trans justice groups run by and for trans people⁣
