International Transgender Day of Visibility is a day to celebrate trans folks and raise awareness about the discrimination and violence that targets them.

Every day is a day to act towards ending racism, and today is the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (IDERD).

Hateful actions need to stop and white supremacy must be dismantled.
