Maggie 2019 Stands With the Transgender and Non-Binary Community

The transgender and non-binary communities face disproportionate rates of violence and murder in this country. In Chicago, we remember the names of the transgender people killed this year alone just for being themselves, including Dejanay Stanton and Ciara Minaj Carter Frazier.

The Trump Administration’s attempts to erase the trans community is cruel and needless, targeting people who already wake up each day at risk. Chicagoans don’t stand for this viciousness - we stand in support of our trans and non-binary family.
