"Transgender and gender non-conforming people may have higher levels of interaction with police. They are more likely to interact with police because they are more likely to be victims of violent crime and be on the street due to homelessness and/or being unwelcome at home.
Because their circumstances often force them to work in the underground economy, and many face harassment and arrest simply
because they are out in public while being transgender. Some transgender women report that police profile them as sex workers and arrest them for solicitation without cause." From
"INJUSTICE AT EVERY TURN: A REPORT OF THE NATIONAL TRANSGENDER DISCRIMINATION SURVEY" from The National Center for Transgender
Equality

We plan to bring attention to this criminalization at this meeting and demand a stop to it.

United Against Police Terror is a grassroots organization, dedicated to Intersectionally educating and organizing the community to fight back in San Diego

San Diego chapter of Black and Pink, an organization supporting LGBTQ prisoners impacted by the prison industrial complex.
