On this Transgender Day of Remembrance, we want to take time to remember our fallen transgender siblings. Transgender members of the LGBTQ community face the most violence, and the brunt of that violence falls on Black trans women. We must do more to protect them. We must remember their names. And we must never forget that our fight for equality won’t be finished without finally addressing the racism that is deeply rooted in our country.

So far in 2020, the lives of at least 37 transgender or gender nonconforming people have been stolen by violence. This number, compiled by the Human Rights Campaign, is not complete. It’s likely that there are more transgender people whose lives were taken by violence. We hold these names, the ones we know and the ones we don’t, in our hearts today.
