At least 22 transgender and gender non-conforming people have been killed in 2019, according to an annual report on anti-transgender violence released by the Human Rights Campaign. None of the deaths listed in the report occurred in Georgia, however 68% of the victims lived in the South. The Human Rights Campaign bills itself as the largest national lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer civil rights organization.
Wednesday’s event will have several guest speakers, including representatives from the Georgia ACLU, Georgia Equality, and the Trans Housing Atlanta Program. Names of the victims will also be read at the vigil.
