People of color initiate Trans Day of Action
By LeiLani Dowell
Trans and gender non-conforming (TGNC) people of color and their allies will march here on Friday, June 24, in an historic event to protest the injustices that trans and gender non-conforming people face on a daily basis, and demand social and economic justice for all people.
People of color are pioneering this effort. In the fighting spirit of Stonewall, the first annual Trans Day of Action for Social and Economic Justice has been initiated by TransJustice, the first and only trans and gender non-conforming people of color project in New York City, to call attention to the needs of TGNC and working people.
