TDOR 2018 PRESS CONFERENCE - NOV. 20TH at 11:30am
On the eve of this Trans Day of Remembrance/ Resilience/
Resistance Local transgender youth of color from the organization BreakOUT!, a youth-led membership-based organization of LGBTQ youth in New Orleans, are standing together united under a message of fearlessness and love for their communities on the International Transgender Day of Remembrance. The day was developed to remember all transgender people who were murdered the previous year.
As the city of New Orleans celebrates its 300th anniversary, youth at BreakOUT! call on the local administration, which is making history in its own way, to make vitally necessary interventions. With threats and systematic harassment and violence failing to cease, and a national administration trying its hardest to erase Trans people all together, the youth will return to the steps of City Hall with their demands, more determined than ever before.
The youth say that they not only deserve respect and the acknowledgement of their dignity, but also access to jobs, housing, education, and space to come together to heal from centuries of trauma, especially since young transgender women of color continue to die at alarming rates across the country and are disproportionately vulnerable to violence, homelessness, unemployment, and criminalization.
