BLACK LIVES MATTER

In the United State, police officers kill over 1,000 people every year. Black Americans account for less than 13 percent of the U.S. population, but are killed by police at more than twice the rate of white Americans. (The Washington Post)

LGBTQ people, especially LGBTQ people of color, are overrepresented in the criminal and juvenile justice systems. LGBTQ people are frequently targeted by and vulnerable to increased criminalization and abuse by law enforcement. They regularly experience assault and violence in correctional settings. And they face extraordinary challenges to rebuilding their lives upon release from the system, both because of their criminal record and because they are LGBTQ. (Movement Advancement Project)

Since 2015, 123 unarmed Black Americans have been killed in the U.S. at the hands of police.

BLACK TRANS LIVES MATTER

Transgender individuals, in particular black transgender women, have faced an epidemic of violence in recent years.

Data collection is often incomplete or unreliable when it comes to violent and fatal crimes against transgender and gender non-conforming people. Some victims’ deaths may go unreported, while others may not be identified as transgender or gender non-conforming in the media, often because authorities, journalists and/or family members refuse to acknowledge their gender correctly. (Human Rights Campaign)

Since 2015, 142 transgender people have been murdered in the United States. 91% of them were Black women and 80% were under the age of 30.
