It has been one year since the tragic hate crime that resulted in the death of Casey Haggard, a trans woman from Fresno, California.
Casey (like many trans people who are the victims of hate crimes) has still not received justice, her murderer has still not been found.
On August 12th, Trans-E-Motion will be hosting a March and Vigil in remembrance of Casey.
We will march down the street that Casey last walked down before her life was senselessly cut short. We will meet at Fresno City College parking lot V (refer to map) at 8pm. We will march down Blackstone until we reach the spot where Casey died at Blackstone and Cornell. At the parking lot/sidewalk area of 3004 N. Blackstone (at Cornell and Blackstone) we will have a moment of silence, followed by speakers. We will then March back to the starting point at Blackstone and Weldon.
Please feel free to bring flowers or any other items that you wish to bring to leave for Casey at the vigil.
Water bottles and LED tea lights will be provided (please do not bring actual candles due to the expected weather).
The event will be outdoors with no seating, please plan accordingly.
We hope to see you there!
