National Trans Visibility March pledges solidarity to Reclaim Pride.
Chicago, Illinois, July 6, 2020
The National Trans Visibility March is mobilizing across the country in preparation of the second annual Trans March in October. On Sunday, June 28, 2020, in Chicago, we pledged our support and marched alongside our siblings at the Pride Without Prejudice- Reclaiming Pride March.
“On behalf of the Organizing Committee of Pride Without Prejudice- Reclaiming Pride (Chicago), I would love to thank the National
Trans Visibility March for their support and recognition of our march as a national initiative for The Transgender Visibility March On Washington DC,” said Fredy Roberts-Ramirez, the VOICES Project Manager- Broadway Youth Center Chicago. “Thank you, Marissa Miller, and Wemi Esho for the plaque, your presence, your quick response for endorsement and believing that this initiative falls in line with the mission of the National Trans Visibility March. We will continue to voice the initiative and make sure Chicago is present at the National March in Washington DC on October 3, 2020. Thank you so much for standing in solidarity with us, it’s greatly appreciated”.
The pioneer edition of the Pride Without Prejudice- Reclaiming Pride march brought out thousands of people marching through the streets of Chicago to support and uplift Black Trans Lives. The overlaying theme of the march included the demand for justice for Ciara Minaj, Carter Frasier, Tony McDade and the other Black Trans people that have been murdered across the United States this year.
Ignited by the murder of George Floyd, we launch 'We Can’t Breathe Either’ campaign in June to protest the killings of Black Trans people in America; especially Black Trans women and demand that justice be done.
The first-ever National Trans Visibility March kicked off on September 28, 2019, bringing thousands out onto the streets of Washington, D.C. to protest the hate and discrimination against Transgender, Gender Non-conforming and Non-binary (TGNCNB) people. March with us this year on October 3, 2020 as we make our voices heard at polls. To march with us, kindly register to attend.

The 2020 National Trans Visibility March will Continue the BlackOut Racism Virtual Event Series!
WASHINGTON, D.C., June 2020 -- The National Trans Visibility March’s recent virtual event, BlackOut Racism, reached over 20,000 people on June 13th. “The feedback was so overwhelming that we decided to continue the series until the March happening on October 3rd,” remarks this year’s National Strategy Director, Dani Farrell, “it’s important that we keep these conversations going and the National Trans Visibility March believes it’s our responsibility to provide a platform to do so!”
In July, the National Trans Visibility March will host the next installment of BlackOut Racism. NTVM will bring back the co-moderator’s from Real Deal: The Trans Experience; Hope Giselle, trans activist, author, and NTVM’s Director of External Affairs along with Tatiana Williams, LGBTQ advocate and Co-Founder/Executive Director of Transinclusive Group, Inc. The panels for the July event will focus on voting and conversations with non-Black allies on how their contributions can shape the future of the current movements.
This past week, NTVM has launched the “We Can’t Breathe Either” campaign, which shines a very necessary spotlight on the recent killings and violence against the Black trans community, especially Black trans women. “We have been quiet, we have been polite, but now is the time to demand justice, equality, and safety for our Black trans siblings!” says Marissa Miller, last year’s National Strategy Director and this year’s Director of Fundraising & Operations.
