This is not ok

On behalf of the Centre, we would like to express our deepest sympathy to those affected by the defacement of the #SAYHERNAME Mural. This mural honoured the lives of trans women of colour and its message needs to be seen.

Theses forms of violence and oppression are not acceptable in our community.

The Centre work with the Ottawa Police through our seat at the Police Liaison Committee, and will continue to ask all levels of government to take appropriate action to address these diverse issues.

Through our work, we will continue to address discrimination and oppression against trans women of colour.

Please take action on these issues by learning how to improve your allyship, bringing workshops & new learning into your work & community, and speak out against oppression.
