Trans Sex Worker Lana Madison Labeija on Ending Violence Against Trans Women

September 30, 2020 21:59

During the 9/24/20 Lives At Stake virtual town hall, TransLash founder Imara Jones speaks with Lana Madison Labeija, a trans woman sex worker who survived a horrific act of anti-trans violence, about ending violence against trans women.

About this event: 2020 has been a painful one with a staggering loss of life. Against the backdrop of COVD-19, the reality that the murders of trans women this year, particularly Black trans women, has already shattered last year’s record is a lot to absorb. We will unpack what’s behind this spasm of violence and how to end it.

Jones talks with Beverly Tillery, Executive Director of the Anti-Violence Project, and Mariah Moore, co-founder and co-director of House of Tulip, a community land trust focused on housing solutions for TGNC communities in Louisiana.

ASL interpretation was available during the show.
