Welcome. The Transgender Violence Tracking Portal is an attempt to collect data on anti-transgender violence in order to protect the transgender* community in real time and to help us be better-informed advocates for change.
Transgender* people make up 1 to 1.5% of the world’s population but about 400 times more likely to be assaulted or murdered than the rest of the population. These crimes are more likely to be violent, and are often meant to intimidate the entire community. Many of these crimes are left unsolved, which makes it doubly important to track and hold law enforcement accountable to solving these crimes.
We work to provide news of violence against the transgender* community and, eventually, a central repository of reports (searchable by location and time).
Backed by a successful kickstarter campaign, the site currently features news and the ability to submit an incident report, as well as reports of missing persons and the ability to share and disseminate news via social media from a central location.
We hope you will join us in our effort to help protect and stop violence against the transgender community by taking action with us today.
