Now is a really great time to get active with community building. Barely 3 months into the year 10 trans people (9 out of them being trans women of color, of whom 8 were black) have been killed in the US. If you don’t fight for trans women, especially trans women of color, you fight for no women. There are many things we can do; for those of you who are new to this type of organizing, here is an article listing 24 actions you can take to support the survival of trans women of color:

History Spotlight

2017 December 8, 2009 - "U.S. Agrees to Settle Lawsuit Brought by Native Americans for $3.4 Billion" The United States federal government announced that it intends to pay $3.4 billion to settle claims that it has mismanaged the revenue in American Indian trust funds. In 2012, it finalized this settlement, ending one of the largest and most complicated class-action lawsuits ever brought against the United States. The lawsuit lasted 15 years in total and involved hundreds of thousands of land trust accounts that date back to the 19th century. Specialists in federal tribal law described the suit as one of the most important in the history of legal disputes involving the government's treatment of American Indians.
