“51 years after Stonewall, too many Black LGBTQ+ Americans face poverty & violence every day. The murder of Black trans women is an epidemic. Our policing system fails them. We say loud & clear: #BlackLivesMatter, #BlackQueerLivesMatter & #BlackTransLivesMatter," Warren Tweeted. 

In another tweet, Sen. Warren said that “Today & every day, we remember the Black Americans & LGBTQ+ Americans who have risked everything to fight for equity, justice, & respect. And we continue fighting to dismantle bigotry, hate, homophobia, transphobia, & white supremacy in our country.”

“The murder of Black trans women is a crisis. Say their names: Dominique “Rem’mie” Fells and Riah Milton,” Warren tweeted Friday on her official campaign account.

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, Milton was killed last Tuesday during a robbery and shooting in Liberty Township, Ohio and Fells was killed last Tuesday in Philadelphia.
