Apr 5, 2013 — Today I was notified of the deaths of two transwomen - both murdered. In Orlando Florida, Ashley Sinclair was pushed out of a vehicle and slaughtered with four shots. In Baltimore, another transwoman was shot and killed in her home on Wednesday. There currently are no suspects.

When transgender people everywhere are marginalized, erased and hidden, others believe that we are simply there for the slaughter.

I want to again ask you for desperate help -- can you call, email, tweet or Facebook share to every friend, every colleague, ever family member requesting they sign the petition and ask HRC to get serious about changing their actions of oppressing the transgender community, erasing our lives, and giving others a path to harm us?

Our very lives depend on it-
