Protesters in Boston marched following the not-guilty verdict in the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse, who shot three people, killing two of them at a protest against police violence in Wisconsin last year. Multiple organizations united to rally together, with more than 50 people gathering peacefully in downtown Boston on the evening of Nov. 19. More actions will follow this coming week.
Organized by Trans Resistance, this year’s Transgender Day of Remembrance vigil and gathering took place at Simmons University, where Jahaira DeAlto, a 42-year-old transgender woman of color who was killed on May 2 in Boston, studied. The Day of Remembrance is observed annually on Nov. 20 to memorialize those who are killed as a result of transphobia.
