Black Trans Rights Are Human Rights

Take Action – Pass The Equality Act Now!

Black transgender people report experiencing the highest levels of discrimination of all transgender people based on the combination of anti-transgender bias with structural and individual racism.

The Equality Act would provide consistent and explicit non-discrimination protections for TLGBQ people across key areas of life, including employment, housing, credit, education, public spaces and services, federally funded programs, and jury service.

BLACK TRANS PEOPLE ARE UNDER ATTACK

Everyone deserves LOVE and to live a life with equal access and protection under the law thereby enabling them to contribute towards a productive society.

No one should live in fear of discrimination and violence

While we don’t know the true number of murders of transgender people, as often the crimes go unreported or the victims are misgendered by the police or in the media, the rates of murder and hate crimes are greatly disturbing.

To date, in 2021, at least 29 transgender people have been killed as targets of anti-transgender violence.
