Who's Streets, Our Streets!

TransJustice calls a Press Conference at City Hall.

New York City, NY Ð Trans and Gender Non- conforming activists of color and their allies will hold a press conference on the front steps of City Hall on June 20th at 1pm to announce the 2nd Annual Trans Day of Action for Social and Economic Justice.

TransJustice, a project of the Audre Lorde Project, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Two-Spirit, and Trans People of Color Center for Community Organizing, is leading and organizing the 2nd Annual Trans Day of Action for Social and Economic Justice.

On June 23rd, a rally and march will take off from Chelsea Park, at West 27th Street heading up 8th Avenue. The first stop on 8th Avenue is The Human Resources Administration (HRA) office on 34th Street. A 4pm protest rally has been called by the Gender Action Coalition --because of the existing systemic problems of discrimination and harassment that trans and gender non-conforming people face when trying to obtain public benefits.

The march continues up 42nd St, denouncing the growing violence and murders of trans and gender non-conforming people in this area and throughout New York City. TransJustice calls attention to the increased wave of violence in the LGBT community including the most recent attacks on performers Manuel Xavier and Kevin Aviance.

TransJustice proposed this route because of its relevance to the transgender community. Historically, Eighth Avenue has been home to the transgender community and is the location of several community service agencies as well as many HIV organizations and nightclubs.

TransJustice believes that the Bloomberg Administration and the NYPDÕs posture to not allow the Trans Day of Action to obtain permits to march on 8th Ave. and respond with anti-LGBT remarks like, Òto go back to the villageÓ is indicative of a political climate, that gives the green-light to anti-trans and gay violence like the recent attacks on performers like Kevin Aviance and Emanuel Xavier.

Trans Day of Action currently has over 100 national and international endorsers including the Borough Manhattan President Scott Stringer, NYC Council Member Letitia James, DefJam Poet Stacyann Chin, Asociacion Travestis, Transexualses, Transgeneros Argentinas (ATTTA), Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice, Committee In Solidarity with the People of El Salvador (CISPES), Community HIV/AIDS Mobilization Project (CHAMP), Domestic Workers United , FIERCE!, Housing Works Inc, The International Action Center, Jews for Racial and Economic Justice (JFREJ), CAAAV-Organizing Asian Communities, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center of NYC, New Immigrant Community Empowerment (NICE),Nodutdol for Korean Community Development, North Star Fund, Santamaria Fundaci—n GLTB, Cali, Colombia , The Sylvia Rivera Law Project and TransAction Theatre Company, United Kingdom. TransJustice estimates that participants will surpass 2,000 this year. Endorsements can be sent to endorsetdoa@alp.org or by calling (718) 596-0342 ext 18.

Scheduled to speak at the June 20th press conference, will bevrepresentatives of LGBT organizations, elected officials, immigrant rights and anti-war groups.
