Hello. I would like to take the time today to pay my respect and recognize our transgender lives lost to violence and those affected. Violence against transgender people is increasing this year, unfortunately. As your City Council 2018, I want you to know that I stand with you all the way. I have lost trans friends to violence which hits home. I don’t tolerance violence and will do everything I can do to stop violence by spreading awareness, offer support, and seek them being protected by policies/laws. I also will make sure that Portland has all the resources readily available for our trans community because you matter.
