One of our sisters needs our help!!!
Meet CECE MCDONALD,
a young African American transgender woman who was violently attacked in South Minneapolis.
As she and her friends, all African American and queer or allied, were heading to a grocery store, a group of white men shouted racist and transphobic slurs at CeCe and her friends (i.e. “faggots” “n*****s” “chicks with dicks…”)
Unfortunately, the violence did not end here. One of the men slashed CeCe’s face with a broken bottle, cutting through her cheek, and one of the attackers was fatally stabbed.
Miraculously, in the aftermath of this racist and transphobic attack, the only person facing charges is CeCe McDonald – the victim. She is being charged with two counts of second degree murder.
