We know that #TDOR2020 was particularly rough, and we want to thank you for participating in our Trans Awareness Week activities by liking and sharing our case profile posts. It is clear there is so much more work to be done and a trans awareness week is not enough. There is an epidemic of trans homicides, and this past year saw a significant increase in the number of victims. As we head towards 2021, we are focusing on getting the word out about our LAMMP database (LGBTQ+ Accountability for Missing and Murdered Persons: http://lammp.transdoetaskforce.org). We are also beginning to brainstorm with other groups doing related work.
The Trans Doe Task Force, Trans Cold Cases and Missing, Murdered, & Unidentified LGBT+ started LAMMP earlier this year to support our community’s specific needs when we go missing or are found and unidentified. LAMMP provides a place for LGBTQ+ people to be reported as missing, and potential unidentified persons who may be LGBTQ+ as well, while protecting the identities and privacy of the reporting person and the victim. Complementary to this work, we are proud to announce our support of Studio City ‘s Trans Day of Remembrance Project, in collaboration with TCOPS International, Arianna’s Center / Translatina FL, National Center for Transgender Equality, Nu Trans Movement, Inc, and the Trans People of Color Coalition. On Tdor2020.com anyone can report tips, leads, and information about a Trans or gender variant murder, including tips about possible perpetrators, to help get justice for the victims and answers for their loved ones. #takeaction#changeisnecessary#translivesmatter
