Black Lives Matter

Black Lives Matter. Black LGBTQ+ Lives Matter. Black Trans Lives Matter. Violence against the transgender community is often forgotten or left out of our demonstrations for justice, and this is particularly the case for transgender women of color. They are our siblings in our cause, and the Berkshire County Branch of the NAACP and Berkshire Pride hold space, today and everyday, for their lost lives and for lives lost of those who we will never know or have been misreported on.

Become a member of the Berkshire County Branch of the NAACP.
