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:
