A group of concerned transgender citizens and their allies marched in Albuquerque, New Mexico as part of a nationwide effort to draw attention to the violence directed at trans women, particularly trans women of color. This violence has resulted in at least 17 murders so far in 2015. #ProtectTransLives #BlackTransLivesMatter #TransIsBeautiful #TransLivesMatter
From N’MPower Albuquerque’s Facebook Post:
There was quite a bit of discrimination down Central and some situations that were ridiculous but there was also a great deal of support by people driving by!
We marched for the 17 Trans women murdered so far this year.
END THE SILENCE, STOP THE VIOLENCE
