The Transgender Law Center has declared a moment of silence at 2:00 pm today (Central Time), in honor of Londonn Moore Kinard and all of the young Black transgender women murdered in just the last two weeks.
The TLC requests that everyone “Go outside with your friends, loved ones, classmates, and coworkers, say the names of the Black trans women we’ve lost this year, hold a moment of silence, and demand action for Black trans lives.”
OUTMemphis holds close this tragedy and stands with all people who experience horrifying injustice. We will continue to work for social change and justice for all.
We encourage everyone who sees this to hold a moment of silence today at 2:00p, wherever you are. Here is a list of the names of black trans women killed in the last two weeks, and a longer list of women who have lost their lives this year.
