   Action Alert! Fight for the Right of The 2nd Annual Trans Day of Action to March & Rally on 8th Avenue!

The New York City Police Department and the City of New York are attempting to deny TransJustice‚s applications to march and rally on 8th Avenue.  On June 6th, during a meeting at Manhattan South, NYPD Assistant Chief Bruce Smolka, made an anti-LGBT remark when he told TransJustice members, "to Go Back to The Village" and that a 5:00pm rally at 42nd Street & 8th Avenue would not be allowed.

TransJustice called the rally at 42nd Street  & 8th Avenue to address the growing violence and murders of Trans People. The rally will also be used to commemorate the 6th year anniversary of Amanda Milan, a 25 year-old African-American transgender woman, who was brutally murdered, on June 20, 2000, in the middle of an intersection near Port Authority Bus Terminal as onlookers cheered.

Historically, 8th Avenue has been regarded as the place that several LGBT and HIV organizations as well as LGBT nightclubs have called home.  TransJustice selected this 8th Ave route to call attention to innumerable members of our communities that work, reside, play, as well as access supportive services, right in the heart of Midtown.

On June 23rd, Trans and Gender Non-Conforming People of Color and their allies will rally and march against police brutality, to oppose the racist and xenophobic immigration policies of the Bush Administration, to show our outrage at the lack of access to living wage employment, adequate affordable housing, quality education, basic healthcare for our communities, and to demand an end to the devastating impacts of US imperialism (the so-called "war on terrorism") being waged against people at home and abroad.

Ultimately, TransJustice sees this attempt to deny the march route and permits as part of the ongoing plan of the Bloomberg Administration to repress the progressive political movements of NYC.  Now more than ever, TransJustice calls on all social justice activists from the communities of color, lesbian, gay, bi, two spirit and trans movements, immigrant rights organizations, youth and student groups, trade unions and workers organizations, religious communities and HIV/ AIDS and social service agencies to endorse, build contingents and to help fight for the right to march on 8th Avenue on June 23rd.

(West 27ththSt. Bet 9th & 10th Aves)
