Saftey in the Wake of Orlando-Community, Not Police

trans-march-copy-620x620“Transgender, gender nonconforming, and LGB Latinx communities and communities of color have always protected each other — and the stories from Orlando will tell you the same. In this moment of increased policing and militarization of our community spaces, we continue to build community and develop ways to extend our conversations about the many real threats we face in our homes and community spaces.”

Dear TJFP family and community,

For those of us who are struggling with holding the complexities of grief, pain, and fear with a desire to stay close during such devestatingly violent times, here is a wonderfully smart article (in English and Spanish) offering thoughts and resources for community safety.  Please read and share, Safety in the wake of Orlando — community, not police written by Collette Carter in coordination with the ACLU, The Audre Lorde Project, The New York City Anti-Violence Project, Mijente, Southerners On New Ground, National Lawyers Guild, Vision Change Win, BYP100, and Transgender Law Center.
