Today @ 6PM!
L.A. Black trans* community organizers in solidarity with Black Lives Matter National Team’s ‘Trans Liberation Tuesday’ emergency call to action invite you to this local rally entitled 'L.A. LIVE 4 Black Trans* LIVES' which is in response to the escalating murders of Black trans* women in the United States
In collaboration with Black Trans Women's Lives Matter, Black Lives Matter: Los Angeles, Familia: Trans Queer Liberation Movement, Gender Justice LA, LAQR - Los Angeles Queer Resistance Collective and local transgender, transsexual and gender non-conforming community members/advocates, and supported by LGBQ, cisgender and non-trans straight allies, this demonstration centers on the plight of Black trans* women’s lives who face the brunt of oppression and hostility while living on the intersections of violence.
Today’s action will highlight the internal and external struggles that Black trans* women (and Black trans femmes) experience by commemorating the lives of Black trans* women we've tragically lost in 2015 due to cisgender male violence. We'll also decry all the many forms of violence our Black trans* sisters simultaneously endure such as state violence, transmisogynoir, systematic misgendering, lack of basic human rights, institutionalized exclusion, sexual assault, domestic violence, the prison industrial complex, denial of life-saving transition-related healthcare and structural anti-Blackness.
Convening at the corner of Pico/Figueroa
Sharing allies/friends in struggle's stories of how they have and will show up for trans* women particularly, Black trans* women and Black trans* feminine people.
