OFFICE OF THE PUBLIC ADVOCATE
FOR THE CITY OF NEW YORK
JUMAANE D. WILLIAMS
Public Advocate Jumaane D. Williams will be joined by a coalition of advocates for a virtual press conference to call for a series of urgent actions and initiatives today to combat the historic rise of violence targeting transgender individuals. At least 32 transgender or gender non-conforming people have been killed in 2020, making it the deadliest year on record for the trans community; the Public Advocate will hold a moment of silence to honor the lives lost.
WHEN: Wednesday, October 14, 12:00 PM
WHERE: The virtual press conference will be held via Zoom - and the event will stream live on Facebook.
