dc.description Report en_US
dc.description.abstract The Human Rights Campaign Trans Justice Working Group and Trans People of Color Coalition tracked the deaths of transgender individuals in the United States, and compiled the data reported by other organizations. Statistics and fact sheets begin on page 33, following the stories of individuals. The report includes charts comparing the number of homicides of trans men, trans women, and non-binary individuals and number of homicides by race and location, from 2013 through 2017. The report notes that “data collection is often incomplete or unreliable when it comes to violent and fatal crimes against transgender people.” Finally, the report lists events in 2017 that discriminated against trans people and discusses the history of discrimination and systemic barriers such as: socioeconomic status; inadequate law enforcement responses; discrimination in employment, healthcare, housing, and government documentation; intimate partner violence; and familial rejection.
