Due to the tragic April 16th murder of 23-year-old Paige Clay, a Chicago-area transgender women whose death has left us all in shock and demanding justice from the authorities, NCTE has cancelled its May 1 event in order to support a community response to Paige’s murder.
A community event called Justice for Paige has been organized for Tuesday evening. NCTE encourages our friends to attend.
As one of the Nation’s leading trans social justice organizations, we understand how effective it can be when our community joins together. Thank you for your ongoing support of our work. We hope to reschedule our Chicagoland reception sometime in the near future. Until then, we invite you to join NCTE’s Executive Director, Mara Keisling, at Justice for Paige or to learn how you can support NCTE’s work to ensure trans equality visit: http://transequality.org/.
