On this day: Rosa Parks refused to give up her bus seat
December 01, 2023
What a year 2020 has been.
I serve on the board of the ERA Coalition, a coalition big enough to include trans women of color who bear the brunt of our country’s misogyny, racism and transphobia. Today we mark the 21st International Day of Transgender Remembrance, the annual day we honor the memory of the transgender and gender-nonconforming people whose lives were viciously cut short due to anti-trans violence. This year, 34 people were killed, a record high, and the majority of whom were Black and Brown transgender women. This is heartbreaking. It needs to stop.
I invite you to be a part of our movement for equality -- sign our petition to urge the Senate to vote on the removal of the time limit on the Equal Rights Amendment. Writing “sex” into the constitution is the most protective means to include women and people of all genders into the fabric of our society. It would allow us to pass laws that protect all women and LGBTQ+ people, and not wait for the courts to decide who is a “person” under the eyes of the law.
