Support New York Endorses Trans Day of Action 2014
A bunch of us will be marching as allies with the Audre Lorde Project for NYC’s Trans Day of Action this Friday, come out and join us! We’ll be marching to honor those who have come before us in the fight to end violence against trans and gender non-conforming people of color, and in solidarity with movements working to end violence against all oppressed people. See their Facebook event for more details, and also their Points of Unity!
From the event page:
“On Friday, June 27, 2014, TGNC (Trans and Gender Non-Conforming) People of Color (POC) and allies will take the streets of New York City once again to demand justice and let the world know that the Stonewall Rebellion is not over and we will continue fighting for justice and raising our voices until we are heard.
This year we are excited to celebrate a decade of resistance, resilience and revolution as we call for social and economic justice, and raise awareness of the many pressing issues TGNC POC face. On this day, the 45th anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Rebellion, we will lift up and celebrate the legacy of the amazing TGNC POC warriors that have paved the way for our movements today. We will also honor and continue the struggle for justice, liberation, and recognition for all oppressed people across the globe.
We as TGNC People of Color (POC), recognize the importance of working together alongside other movements to create the world we want to see. We live in a time when oppressed peoples including people of color, people who are currently and formerly incarcerated, immigrants, youth and elders, people with disabilities, women, TGNC people, and poor people are underserved, face higher levels of discrimination, heightened surveillance and experience increased violence at the hands of the state. Let’s come together to let the world know that TGNC rights will not be undermined and we will not be silenced!”
