It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else. Thank you so much!

Tracy Single Is 15th Known Trans Woman of Color to Be Killed in 2019

HeadlineAug 20, 2019

Tracy Single, a 22-year-old transgender woman, is believed to be the 16th transgender person — and the 15th trans woman of color — killed this year. Single’s body was found in Houston, Texas, on July 30, but authorities were only able to identify her last week. The Human Rights Campaign called for justice for Tracy Single and said, “[We] will continue to hold the Trump administration and all elected officials who fuel the flames of hate accountable at the ballot box. This epidemic of violence that disproportionately targets transgender people of color — particularly Black transgender women — must cease.”
