“This march has been postponed due to the rise in COVID cases! We will be planning a socially distanced event really soon!”
Join BQIC for the 2nd Annual March for Black Trans Lives on November 14th at 4:00 PM as we honor the lives of Black trans people. We will be meeting at Mayme Moore Park.
This election cycle is coming to a close, but the fight continues to dismantle racism, transmisogyny and transphobia, capitalistic greed, and all other forms of oppression in our so-called “Land of the Free.” This year has surpassed the last in documented killings of Black trans people, especially Black trans women. Our people are being stolen from us at heartbreaking speed. No matter who is President, everyone has the duty to rise up against the injustices that our Black trans family face on a daily basis. The State will not give us the means to free ourselves — only communities working together to define their needs can secure our liberation!
The march will be 1.5 miles with three stops along the route, including the final destination where we will read the names and stories of the Black trans people we lost in 2020. The weather forecast predicts a high of 55 — we suggest that you wear layers to keep warm! Speakers TBA!
ASL interpretation will be provided. We will prioritize having Black trans people, people with disabilities, and families with children near the front of the march.
This march is for:
Dominique “Rem’mie” Fells
Brooklyn DeShuna Smith
Queasha D. Hardy
Dior H Ova
Aja Raquell Rhone-Spears
Brian ‘Egypt’ Powers
Lea Rayshon Daye
