Tyianna Alexandra, a 28-year-old Black trans woman, was killed on Jan. 6, just a few days after the end of 2020, the deadliest year for trans and gender non-confroming people on record since HRC began tracking in 2013.

LGBTQ people deserve access to quality health care without fear of discrimination. This latest attack from the Trump administration is based in hate and must be rescinded.

HRC mourns the death of Samuel Edmund Damián Valentín, a trans man who was killed on Jan. 9 in Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico. Samuel’s death is believed to be at least the second violent death of a trans or gender non-conforming person in 2021.

Violence against the trans and gender non-conforming community is rampant. In 2020, fatal violence devastatingly reached an all-time high. Now more than ever, it is important that we each do what we can do to put an end to this epidemic. Learn more:

These bills are baseless, dangerous and discriminatory. We must #ProtectTransKids and put a stop to these hateful attacks on students.

Together, we broke barriers in 2020. We endorsed pro-equality candidates and mobilized voters. We volunteered and deployed staff. We made sure that unity won in the 2020 election. Read about it in our latest Equality magazine issue.
