President-elect Biden and VP elect Harris took to Twitter outlining their plan for justice on the Transgender Day of Remembrance.
Biden and Harris have their work cut out.
2018 saw a doubling of transphobic hate crimes over the previous year. Trump’s Discrimination Administration leaves our incoming president to deal with an unparalleled increase in transphobic hate crimes during 2019.
This what President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris had to say about that:
To transgender and gender-nonconforming people across America and around the world: from the moment I am sworn in as president, know that my administration will see you, listen to you, and fight for not only your safety but also the dignity and justice you have been denied.

On this Transgender Day of Remembrance, we honor the memory of the at least 37 transgender or gender-nonconforming people killed this year—the majority of whom were Black and Latinx transgender women.
Today and every day we must recommit to ending this epidemic. #TDOR

America, I’m honored that you have chosen me to lead our great country.
The work ahead of us will be hard, but I promise you this: I will be a President for all Americans — whether you voted for me or not.
I will keep the faith that you have placed in me. pic.twitter.com/moA9qhmjn8
