TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Monday kicks off Transgender Awareness Week in Tallahassee, and Capital Tea, a non-profit that advocates for transgender men and women, will be visible all week.
The group set up a memorial Sunday to pay tribute to the transgender men and women killed across the country.
Capital Tea said that they hope everyone who participates in Transgender Awareness Week can have a deeper understanding of the struggles transgender men and women face daily.
"It's bringing awareness to all these little intersections that cause people like her and I to be found dead in rivers and ditches," said organizer Aline Oxum.
Capital Tea will be hosting a discussion tomorrow at 5:30 about the experiences of trans-women of color.
