Nikki was 17 and a high school student when she was murdered last June. This courageous girl took control of her life in a way that too many in our society don't understand or approve. I didn't know her but I mourn her. A part of every trans person dies with every murder, we internalize our fear and attacks make it harder for us to just exist in public.

Help us. Be aware of us and be our ally if we're harassed, especially when we just need to use the restroom. I cant express how difficult it is to just go out when we know using the bathroom could lead to assault or worse.
