On May 19, 2015 London Chanel, age 21 a black transgender woman was found bleeding on a sidewalk outside an abandoned Philadelphia building. She was stabbed in the neck and back during a domestic altercation resulting in her death. Her assailant received a 22-44 year sentence for her murder.

The majority of trans people are black women. Ninety-one percent of the reported murders of trans and gender non conforming proper in 2019 were black women, and 81% were under the age of 30, (HRC, 2019).

Greater awareness has not yet translated into broad acceptance, says Kris Hayashi, executive director of the Transgender Law Center: “The majority of society does not understand who transgender people are in ways that lead to the violence and the murder and the harassment that we’re seeing.”

On May 27, 2020 Tony McDade a 38-year old Black Transgender man was fatally shot in the Leon As apartment complex by an officer of the Tallahassee Police Department following the fatal stabbing of a person who allegedly physically assaulted him along with four other people days before. May he rest in Power.

Fatal violence disproportionately affects transgender women of color, and that the intersections of racism, sexism, homophobia and transphobia conspire to deprive them of employment, housing, healthcare and other necessities are barriers that make them vulnerable.
