Victimization of Transgender People

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is an internationally known group that is dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry and to seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of our society. Their work on LGBT issues spans decades and primarily focuses on the Southeast. They recently published a poignant article, In the Crosshairs, about the victimization of transgender people. The author, Don Terry, profoundly describes the horrific crimes that are perpetrated toward transgender people. It is eye-opening and illuminates the amount of work that still needs to be done for the trans community!
