“Every day I wake up in fear. Would this be my last day? Would this be the day somebody takes me out?,” says Lourdes Ashley Hunter, the Executive Director of the Trans Women of Color Collective at the Women’s March in St. Louis, Missouri.

“I do not let that fear consume me because I am a bad bitch.” In only a few powerful words, the activist calls for an end to violence and discrimination against all marginalized communities in this country.
