Trans Empowerment Project
Elevating trans and gender non-conforming communities, especially communities of color, out of crisis and into empowerment in order to advocate for our own liberation and autonomy.
We are very saddened to learn of the loss of yet another unarmed black man.
Tony McDade is a black trans man who was shot and killed by a member of the Tallahassee Police Department on 5/28/2020 for being black.
At this time, we strongly urge all of our supporters to take a stand against racial violence and injustices of any kind.
Trans people of color are the most vulnerable members of our society whose lives are at increasing risk over police brutality and violence from racial biases as well as transphobia.
We at Trans Empowerment Project will NOT allow Tony McDade’s death to be in vain.
