CITY ATTORNEY MIKE FEUER STATEMENT ON TRANSGENDER DAY OF REMEMBRANCE

Updated: Feb 25


"On Transgender Day of Remembrance, we are heartbroken that 2017 is already the deadliest year on record for anti-transgender violence. We are thinking of the at-least 25 trans Americans killed, and so many others who have been assaulted or humiliated. Closer to home, with a 77% increase in gender-based crimes in LA, particularly against transgender people, I want the community to know we are fighting against hate and working to protect you and your loved ones from these crimes."
