Ada & Charles came together as a team to form this movement. A grassroot organizing collective for the Trans/LGBTQ for liberation using direct action. Young people, particularly Black trans/queer have been some of the world's most valuable contributors to movements for racial and gender justice across human history. Unfortunately, for far too long our work has gone under-resourced and overlooked.
We, furthermore, avow to stand with Black Trans Lives, LGTBQ, disabled lives, undocumented immigrant lives, women, and men along the scope of gender. We seek to unite everyone, because we are stronger in numbers.
Together we can help solve our major issues. Our organizational movement centers around those who have been forgotten within Black liberation movements." Let us all come together to help fight for Equality.
Why we want to Help (The Statistics)
Several recent studies - from Trans Equality - have shown that transgender individuals face discrimination within their own family units and schools, in employment and housing, within government settings, through hate crimes, and under the justice and legal systems. From a young age, children are often brought up in heteronormative settings within their own homes and in school.
Parents oftentimes respond quite negatively when their children cross gender barriers, prompting transgender youth to run away. As a result, homeless transgender youth are more likely to turn to drug dealing, car theft, and sexual exploitation.
According to the Human Rights Campaign, less than 43% of gender-expansive youth said they could turn to an adult in their family if they were worried or sad.
In education, transgender individuals also describe discrimination from peers. Transgender youth are three times more likely to be excluded by peers because they are “different.”
A survey of National Center of Transgender Equality states, “Those who expressed a transgender identity or gender non-conformity while in grades K-12 reported alarming rates of harassment (78%), physical assault (35%) and sexual violence (12%); harassment was so severe that it led almost one-sixth (15%) to leave a school in K-12 settings or in higher education.”
Transgender individuals also face discrimination in employment and housing and within government settings. Transgender individuals face double the unemployment, and 90% of those employed face discrimination within their own jobs. The 1994 Employment Non-Discrimination Act does not protect transgender individuals from employment discrimination.[6
Now we find ourselves called to rise up and take action like never before. Our Black trans and queer communities have been disproportionately impacted by the issues that are ravaging our society today. Racism, transphobia, COVID-19, rising rates of unemployment and job loss, housing insecurity, police and interpersonal violence and so much more.
