2020 has been a painful one with a staggering loss of life. Against the backdrop of COVD-19, the reality that the murders of trans women this year, particularly Black trans women, has already shattered last year’s record is a lot to absorb.  We will unpack what’s behind this spasm of violence and how to end it.

Jones talks with Beverly Tillery, Executive Director of the Anti-Violence Project,  Trans Sex Worker Lana Madison Labeija and Mariah Moore, co-founder and co-director of House of Tulip, a community land trust focused on housing solutions for TGNC communities in Louisiana.

ASL interpretation will be available during the show.

The trans community, allies and those who wish to learn more are all welcome to join us to share experiences, insights, questions and celebrations by tweeting @TheGreeneSpace and using the hashtags #translash #livesatstake.

Lives at Stake is a new monthly IRL & livestream/virtual event series at The Greene Space at WNYC/WQXR featuring frank and urgent conversations by and for trans people about issues affecting their communities this Election Season and beyond, produced in partnership with TransLash Media.
