Number 2- Rest In Power and Peace Ashanti
It's also something I've been concerned about as we transition out of the colder winter weather into the spring. When the weather warms up, the anti-trans violence incidents rise along with the warmer temperatures.
We travel to the Washington DC area for news concerning the second trans murder of 2019.
I also had a major problem with the way the report on her death was written by WJLA-TV in DC media.
The area is near the DC-Prince George's County line. Police arrived at the scene seven minutes later, located Carmon, and pronounced her dead at the scene from multiple gunshot wounds.
As of yet, no word on a memorial vigil or a funeral, but once I find out that information, I will pass it on to you TransGriot readers once I receive it. .
And I have to ask once again, especially on this TDOV day, when will our Black trans lives matter to the Black cis community?:
Both the trans people we have lost to anti-trans violence in 2019 have in common they are Black trans feminine people and under age 35.
Rest in power and peace Ashanti. May the person who committed this heinous crime be swiftly caught and punished for it.
