#SayHerName

Tonight I will bring this sign to a Vigil for Shante Thompson, a trans woman of color who was brutally attacked, beaten, shot and killed here in Houston; along with her friend Willie Sims. 

No matter what the story surrounding their brutal attack and murder, the number of murders & violence towards trans women of color is a indication of systemic violence and cultural oppression. It must end.
