Candlelight Vigil For Shante & Willie Friday
As the Houston Police Department talks to trans woman Serenity Colquitt, who turned herself into the police yesterday afternoon in the Shante Thompson-Willie Sims murder case, the planning continues for an upcoming vigil Friday evening to honor the victims of this heinous crimes.
Some of the eight people who viciously attacked are trans themselves, and HPD detectives are seeking a person of interest in the Thompson-Willis case. .
The vigil will take place at Houston City Hall starting at 6 PM, and in addition to honoring the memory of Shante and Willie, it will be a call to action to end anti-trans violence.
In addition to speakers, it will also have a moment of silence for the person we have lost so far in 2016 to anti-trans violence.
Hope you can make it to Houston City Hall Friday night for this event.
