Two Black Trans Women, Dominique "Rem'mie" Fells and Rich Milton, were murdered this week.  Murdered, butchered in the most terrifying way.  Murdered during Black Lives Matter uprising!  Black Trans women and men have been consistently murdered and brutalized by killer police and vigilantes.  IF YOU DO NOT INCLUDE Black Trans People in your actions and movements for freedom and justice then YOU WILL NEVER BE FREE YOURSELF.  

Think about this from Eric Darnell Pritchard  "Because this dehumanization and debasement of Black Trans people is specific, and we have to match that energy by professing the expansive love, care, defense, and kinship for and with Black Trans people... Black Trans women are literally protesting RIGHT NOW for all of us in a pandemic.  To affirm and ensure that the gfreedom they are imagining for all of us includes them is bare minimum.  We have to do better."  [IG @ericdarnellpritchard]
