( Washington, DC, June 26, 2019)– Weapon violence is a lethal epidemic in our neighborhoods and our nation. LGBTQ individuals no longer feel safe entering our schools, going to Pride parades, or perhaps striking the dance flooring on a summertime night. Weapon violence is robbing us of the health and wellness all of us are worthy of.
Today, the National LGBTQ Job Force reveals a brand-new collaboration with Madonna’s Ray of Light Structure to grow its violence avoidance work, particularly as it impacts transgender ladies of color.
” We see Madonna’s commitment to a Transformation of Love as synchronistic with the National LGBTQ Job Force’s #BeYou project,” states Rea Carey, Executive Director. “The National LGBTQ Job Force develops the areas and conditions for LGBTQ individuals to live complimentary, to be you! In order for us to move towards a day when we can be all of ourselves, all of the time, we should get rid of violence, consisting of weapon violence. The Job Force focuses the most susceptible in our neighborhoods to produce security and establish services.”
Madonna states, “I wish to draw attention through my platform as an artist to an issue in America that runs out control and is taking the lives of innocent individuals. This crisis can end if our lawmakers act to alter the laws that stop working to safeguard all of us.”
LGBTQ individuals, especially Black transgender ladies, have a greater threat of violent death, which relates to anti-LGBTQ preconception and discrimination. The Pulse shooting in 2016 concentrated on violent bigotry versus LGBTQ individuals, and the Job Force was among the very first nationwide LGBTQ groups on the ground to react. At the very same time, there is a lot more to the epidemic than mass murders. There are murders by the authorities, there are murders associated to domestic violence, and the murders of sex employees. Violence versus trans ladies of color is ravaging our neighborhood.
” Madonna’s generous contribution brings the nationwide spotlight to neighborhoods who require our assistance to end this epidemic of violence,” states Carey. “Her poetry in ‘God Control’ indicate the weakening of democracy and its unfavorable effects. We concur. Democracy is among 3 pillars supporting our objective of understanding complete liberty, equality, and justice for LGBTQ individuals. Thank you, Madonna, and all of those dedicated to supporting one another despite gender, race, or religious beliefs.”
