This year alone has seen at least 16 trans people killed, almost all of them trans women of color. Two years ago, this week, we lost Kiwi Herring, a trans woman of color to police violence. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
We honor and remember Kiwi while working everyday to end the stigma around transgender individuals. Such stigma fuels a culture of fear: transphobia, biphobia, and homophobia sit at the intersection of racism and misogyny, and fosters violence. We work to make our state and country a safer place for transgender people to be supported and thrive in. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Rest in Power, Kiwi. ⁣
