To learn more:

“The message is simple: state violence directly affects black women and girls, queer, trans and gender nonconforming people. The violence against black women and girls, queer, trans and gender nonconforming people, has been persistent and ranges from physical mauling to sexual assault. It is time to acknowledge this and add it to our understanding of state violence and police brutality,” said Olivia Canlas of AF3IRM NYC.

“We cannot change what we do not name. The violence against black women and girls, including queer, trans, and gender nonconforming people, has been with us for as long as such violence was inflicted upon black men. It is as significant an aspect of state violence and police brutality,” said Lanai Daniels of Sister Circle Collective.
