About the Event
Join Florida Coalition For Transgender Liberation, Tallahassee National Organization for Women, Tallahassee Community Action Committee, Southern Poverty Law Center, FSU and FAMU Students for a Democratic Society, Florida People’s Advocacy Center, Women’s March Florida, Planned Parenthood of South, East and North Florida and other allied partner organizations online for a press conference to speak up against violent doxxing attacks on trans+ justice leaders in Florida's Capital City and across Florida. Help us demand the anti-trans+ sentiment in TPD, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, and attacks on trans+ people by local and state government come to an end.
In the past several months we have seen a myriad of attacks on trans+ justice advocates in Florida. Advocates, many of whom are directly impacted and who work as volunteers in the justice movement fighting anti-transgender policy, are being targeted in their own homes. This includes a trans+ non-binary identified advocate in Tallahassee who has been violently threatened in their home, had damage done to personal property, as well as hate mail and hate calls threatening their person and their spouse. These attacks are fueled by the anti-trans+ rhetoric of Governor Ron DeSantis, anti-LGBTQ + hate groups, anti-trans+ legislation from the Florida Legislature in 2021 and 2022, and an anti-trans+ presence in our police administration including Tallahassee’s own Chief of Police Lawrence Revell who spoke as the Chief of Police of the Tallahassee Police Department at an all expenses paid speaking event from September 28th-30th, 2021 at one of the nation’s most notorious anti-LGBTQ+ Christian right groups.
Join the coalition as we call on the City of Tallahassee, Leon County and Florida state government elected and appointed officials to join us in condemning these violent attacks and help us hold the victimizers, the police and our government accountable.
