Body of transgender woman found shot to death, left on a Cincinnati street

 

  Saturday, June 28, 2014

 

CINCINNATI, Ohio – A transgender woman was found dead Thursday morning in the middle of a Cincinnati street.

 

Tiffany Edwards, 28, had been shot to death, according to news reports, which said her body was discovered about 8 a.m. Thursday by a city sanitation driver.

Local news reports identified her as DeAndre Edwards and didn’t mention her gender identity, but BRAVO — the Buckeye Region Anti-Violence Organization — said Edwards identified as Tiff or Tiffany.

 

BRAVO also said it believes the murder was hate-motivated and that Edwards was targeted based on perception of her gender identity and expression.

 

“BRAVO is saddened and outraged as our communities continue to be targeted,” Executive Director Gloria McCauley said in a statement.

 

Aaron Eckhardt, BRAVO training and technical assistance director said it’s the fourth killing nationwide this month of a transgender woman of color. A 2013 report by the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs found that transgender people were the victims in half the hate-crime killings of LGBT people, and people of color are the victims  in 75 percent of the killings.

 

Edwards’ death is the fourth murder of a transgender woman in Ohio in the past 18 months, and the third murder of a young transgender woman of color:

 

 

  • Betty Skinner, 52, was found dead in her Cleveland apartment in December by a home health worker.

 

  • Brittany Stergis, 22, was found dead in a car in Cleveland, also in December. She had been shot to death. Delshawn Carroll, 19, was arrested and charged with aggravated murder earlier this month.

 

“The brutality and violence we see being committed against trans communities of color is real. It’s happening in our own cities, in our own state. This violence needs to end. Trans lives matter,” Shane Morgan, said founder and chair of TransOhio.

 

McCauley said the latest killing underscores the need for discussion and action on hate crimes against LGBT people. Ohio’s hate-crimes law does not cover crimes based on a victim’s sexual orientation or gender identity.

 

The murders of two other transgender women are being investigated in California and in Florida.

Body of transgender woman found burned, dumped behind garbage bin

 

 Monday, June 23, 2014

 

FORT MYERS, Fla. — More than 200 people attended a vigil Sunday to honor a transgender woman whose body was found dumped behind a garbage bin in Fort Myers, Fla., last week.

 

The bloody and charred body of 31-year-old Yaz’min Shancez was discovered on a dead-end road behind a truck rental facility shortly after 8 a.m. on Thursday, June 19.

Workers reported that Shancez’ body was “still smoldering” when she was discovered.

 

Family and friend describe Shancez — nicknamed “Miss T” — as a proud transgender woman who loved being surrounded by endless relatives at family barbecues, and who never forgot to say I love you.

 

No arrests have been made in what authorities are calling a homicide, but have not classified as a hate crime.

 

In 2013, 13 of the 18 documented anti-LGBTQ homicides were transgender women and 89 percent of the victims were people of color, GLAAD reports.

 

In California, police are investigating the death of another transgender woman whose body was found June 12 behind a Dairy Queen restaurant in Anaheim, Calif.

 

Thank you

Not one single human is safe in this nation until every single human is safe in this nation. The sexual orientation of a person does not allow for that person to be abused, bullied, harassed or systematically murdered.

 

What makes a coward man think he has the right to take a life, especially because he is too chickenshit to accept the fact that humans have a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness dependent upon their own individual ideas of what life liberty and the pursuit of happiness is to them?

 

The problem with Americans in 2014 is their lack of the ability to mind their own muthafuckin business and leave others the fuck alone. I hate AmeriKKKa and coward ass AmeriKKKans.

5-Year Old Fatally Shoots Sister With His Shiny New Rifle; Grandma Says It Was ‘God’s Will’

He added that in the area it is not uncommon for parents to give their young children weapons. “In this part of the country, it’s not uncommon for a 5-year-old to have a gun or for a parent to pass one down to their kid,” he said.

 

The rifle that killed Caroline Sparks is a Crickett single-shot, and has a child safety, according to Cumberland County Coroner Gary White. The company’s web site features three .22-caliber rifle models for children and the slogan, “My first rifle.”

 

The family, while upset, is happy that little Caroline is in a “better place.”

 

“It was God’s will. It was her time to go, I guess,” grandmother Linda Riddle told WLEX. “I just know she’s in heaven right now and I know she’s in good hands with the Lord

Published on Jun 27, 2014

It would be mortifying if this happened to anybody! Can you imagine if these kids had found and were playing with guns. We love this ad. In the year following Sandy Hook Elementary School Massacre at least 100 children were unintentionally killed by gun fire. These deaths are completely preventable. You can never be careful enough when it comes to storing your guns.

SD Republican Party votes to impeach Obama

 

Published on Jun 24, 2014

Impeaching President Barack Obama is a long-standing desire for many, but delegates for the South Dakota Republican Party decided to act instead of merely wish. In a 191-176 vote in favor of impeachment, delegates voiced their approval Saturday for removing from office the 44th president of the United States. Citing what the delegates claim are numerous violations of the oath of office, the resolution calls for Representatives in the House “to initiate impeachment proceedings.” RT’s Ameera David speaks with Robert Burgess, communications director for the South Dakota Republican Party, to learn more about the vote.

Dan Pfeiffer: “POTUS Replies”

 

 

This morning, Senior Advisor Dan Pfeiffer sent the message below to the White House email list to share the story of Rebekah — a hardworking mom from Minneapolis who wrote the President to share her story, and will meet with him later this week.

Didn’t get the email? Be sure to sign up.


Hi, all –

Every day, the Office of Presidential Correspondence sorts through thousands of letters. Every night, President Obama reads ten of them. Some people write to share what his decisions mean in their daily lives, to talk about the economy, or to ask a question about a policy. Others just write in to say hello.

Each letter is a chance for President Obama to hear directly from folks across the country about the sorts of issues they face every day.

The President makes notes in the margins, and sits down to reply personally. He often sends the letters to the staff as reminder of what we are fighting for or to ask us to follow up on an issue raised in the letter. So when Rebekah, a hardworking mom from Minneapolis, wrote in to share how much harder it’s become to get ahead and do right by her family, you can bet the President set that letter aside for a reply.

But he’s not just doing that. He’s meeting Rebekah in person this Thursday to spend a day in her shoes. Watch President Obama tell her story, and find out why he’s traveling to her town.

 

When the President travels to Minnesota, he’ll launch the first in a series of “day-in-the-life” visits across the country this summer. He’ll spend a day with Rebekah — and he’ll meet with her family and community members to discuss the issues that matter to them, host a town hall, and talk about the steps we need to take as a country to help more Americans like Rebekah get ahead.

I know the President is excited to talk with her — and Americans like her. So all this summer, he’ll meet with folks who’ve written in to share what their lives are like. He’ll be hitting the road and traveling to communities across the country — sitting around diner booths and kitchen tables to talk about the issues that matter to them.

Rebekah’s story is representative of the experiences of millions of Americans: Even though our economy’s made a historic comeback, too many middle-class Americans are still stretched too thin, and there’s more work to do.

Make sure you see Rebekah’s story — and then tune in on Thursday as the President travels to Minnesota.

 

 

A Letter to the President: Rebekah

 

Published on Jun 23, 2014

The President reads a letter from Rebekah, a hardworking mom from Minneapolis who wrote to the President about what she sees, what she thinks needs changing, and her struggle to get ahead. The President chose to highlight Rebekah’s story because it is representative of the experiences of millions of Americans: While our economy’s made a comeback, too many Americans are still stretched too thin and the President knows there’s more work to do.

Here’s What You Missed: The White House Summit on Working Families

Yesterday, the White House, in partnership with the Department of Labor and the Center for American Progress, hosted a Summit on Working Families with the aim of having a national conversation and set a concrete agenda to bring American workplaces into the 21st century.

 

That conversation brought together businesses, economists, labor leaders, legislators, advocates, and working citizens to talk through the very real issues facing the full spectrum of working families — from low-wage workers to executives.

 

And you didn’t have to be in Washington to participate join in. Americans across the country tuned in and raised their voices online.

 

As Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett noted yesterday: “This is a movement, not a moment.” So if you missed the event yesterday, you can still add your voice. Take a look at our recap of yesterday’s Summit, and if you’ve got a story tell — get involved.

Senate Delays Hurting Our National Security

 

 

As the President’s National Security Advisor, I am focused every day on keeping our country secure and our citizens – at home and abroad – safe. But these goals are hindered and our stature abroad is weakened when we are not fielding a full team. That’s why I urge the Senate to let the President’s qualified ambassadorial nominees get to work on behalf of the American people.

Right now, 48 nominees for ambassador are pending and 26 are on the Executive Calendar and eligible for confirmation by the full Senate – 16 of whom are career Foreign Service Officers. Together, all ambassadorial nominees have been waiting an average of 161 days, while those on the Executive Calendar have been waiting an average of 262 days. This is simply too long.

These crucial posts are vacant and American interests are therefore underrepresented. The longer we wait to fill these roles the harder it becomes to maintain our effective American diplomacy.

ambassadors10

 

Consider:

  • Kuwait borders Iraq and is a vital strategic partner that requires the highest level engagement given the current situation. Yet our post there remains without an ambassador. Now more than ever, it is crucial that our ambassador to the State of Kuwait is confirmed.

 

  • In Africa, a quarter of our ambassadors are awaiting Senate confirmation. And in combating regional instability and serious challenges such as Boko Haram, key partners including Niger, Cameroon, and Mauritania – as well as our delegation to the African Union – need ambassadors in place now. And with the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit planned for later this summer, it’s crucial that we display our commitment to partnering with leaders from across the continent for the good of Africa and the United States.

 

  • ASEAN will play a crucial role in the East Asia Summit in November 2014, which the President will attend. Substantively and organizationally, we need an ambassador in place to lay the groundwork for a successful Summit. We need a leading voice in our seat at the ASEAN table as tensions in the region have escalated surrounding China’s actions in the South China Sea.

These are only a few of many reasons it is critical to our national security that America fields a full team in our global engagement. The qualified individuals nominated to serve our country need to be confirmed without delay and allowed to do their important work leading our complex and vital interagency teams that are working to protect American interests around the world.

While there is a potential path to confirmation without bipartisan support, our nation’s security is stronger when we act together, and so I call on all members of the Senate to agree to confirm these nominees today so we can get them in place now.

Sylvia Mathews Burwell Sworn In as the New HHS Secretary

This afternoon, the Vice President ceremonially swore in Sylvia Mathews Burwell as the new Secretary of Health and Human Services.

On June 5, Secretary Burwell was confirmed by a strong, bipartisan majority of Senators. In a statement that day, President Obama commended the Senate and reiterated his support for Secretary Burwell as a proven manager:

 

I applaud the strong, bipartisan majority of Senators who today confirmed Sylvia Mathews Burwell as America’s next Secretary of Health and Human Services. Sylvia is a proven manager who knows how to deliver results, and over her career she has built deep relationships with Democrats and Republicans alike. I’m confident Sylvia’s unparalleled experience will serve her well in her new role as she works to ensure the safety of our food and drug supply, protect our nation from outbreaks or bioterror attacks, keep America at the forefront of medical research, and make sure every American has access to quality, affordable healthcare.

Statements and Releases

FACT SHEET: Advancing The Human Rights Of LGBT Persons Globally

Remarks by National Security Advisor Susan E. Rice at the White House Forum on Global LGBT Human Rights

It’s great to be here, and particularly great to see such a wonderful collection of faith leaders, human rights activists, private sector representatives and colleagues in government all in one place.  Protecting and upholding human rights, especially for our lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender brothers and sisters, is work to which we all are called, so thank you, thank you so much for joining us here today.

 

The inexhaustible pursuit of equality, the drive to expand opportunity, the unshakeable conviction that human dignity and human rights are the natural endowment of all humankind—these are qualities that are fundamental to our American character.  For many Americans, they are also essential to our personal story.  I would not be standing here today if those who came before me had not pried open doors that had long been shut to people who look like me.  So, I feel a responsibility and a personal passion to help others enjoy the same opportunities that I have been blessed to receive.  It’s what drives me as a public servant and as a mother, because I do not want my children, or anyone else’s, to have their life choices limited by how they look, who they worship, or whom they love.

 

Universal human rights are not bestowed by governments or powerful majorities, they are God’s gift and the birth right of all people.  They belong to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender men and women as surely as they belong to anyone in the human family.  As President Obama has said so eloquently, “If we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.”

 

It offends our common humanity when men or women anywhere in the world are beaten or abused, or when individuals anywhere have their rights restricted because of who they are.  And, it doesn’t just harm those who are targeted.  It rends the bonds that knit society together.  Trust recedes; suspicion spreads.  Entire countries are deprived of vital contributions from citizens in minority groups.

Target just doesn’t get it.

 

More than 300,000 of the company’s customers have asked Target to stand up for customer safety and prohibit people from openly carrying guns in its stores, yet the company’s leaders still haven’t taken any action.

 

So, it’s time to turn up the heat. Maybe Target will heed our call if some of the influential moms and women who sell products on its shelves speak out.

 

Using our Fast Tweet tool, please take a minute to tweet at Jessica Alba, Bethenny Frankel and Rachael Ray and ask them to urge Target to enact a gun sense policy

When these businesswomen teamed up with Target, they probably didn’t expect customers flaunting semiautomatic rifles to be part of the deal.

 

  • Jessica Alba is a mom of two, and founder of Honest Company, which started selling its products at Target just this month.

 

  • Bethenny Frankel is a mom of one; her Skinny Girl products, including Skinny Girl Cocktails, are sold at Target.

 

  • Rachael Ray is a celebrity chef and entrepreneur who is famous for her fast, easy, family-friendly recipes. Her line of cookware and other products are sold at Target.

 

Target — and its brand partners — need to know that we want a safe shopping environment for our families. If Target wants our business, its leaders need to act.

 

Please visit our Fast Tweet page today and invite Jessica Alba, Bethenny Frankel and Rachael Ray to join our effort to make shopping at Target a safer experience for everyone.

 

Thank you for continuing to put pressure on Target. Together, we’ll get the company’s leaders to make this right.
