Say Her Name: Trans woman of color Kiesha Jenkins dies after being attacked and shot by up to 6 men

Philadelphia homicide Capt. James Clark told the Philadelphia Inquirer that Jenkins, 22, exited a car moments prior to her murder. Once out of the car, the group surrounded Jenkins and when she fell to the ground during the assault, they was shot twice in the back. Jenkins is the second transgender woman to be killed in Philadelphia this year and the 21st in the U.S. This is a dire problem, and as Laverne Cox recently said, fixing it starts with representation.
