Live Dispatch with Women Leaders of Minneapolis
We commit to uplifting Black women leaders and their allies, who are on the front lines right now. And as we kick off Pride Month, it is not lost on us that the Black trans community is at the highest risk for state-sanctioned violence and targeting. We see you.
