Today is Transgender Day of Remembrance.

We are honoring those killed as a result of transphobia in the US in 2017.
Violence and abuse against transgender people in the criminal justice system have also increased the spread of HIV, contributing to a health crisis among transgender women in the US.

Today and everyday, we are working for the elimination of violence against #transgender people in the #US and around the world.
