In the first 11 months of 2016, the murders of 24 transgender people have been reported, making it the deadliest year on record for trans people. Almost all of the victims were people of color, and the vast majority of those were black, transgender individuals.
Given that grim reality, it is no wonder advocates continue to sound the alarm on what they call the epidemic of deadly transphobic violence. And while the world comes together every November 20th to commemorate those lives lost during the annual Transgender Day of Remembrance, the fear and ignorance that fuel these fatal attacks heed no calendar.
The West Virginia University Chapter of NAACP hosts One Morgantown Community; an overnight event to spread awareness for homelessness and hunger. The event will go from 6:00 pm to 8:00 am on the Mountainlair Green with four parts to the event though strongly encouraged, each is not required.
