Reference: Mic Releases Comprehensive Database of Transgender Murders Since 2010

From Mic:

Mic assigned a team of five reporters to create a comprehensive database of transgender Americans who have died by homicide since 2010, the first year the NCAVP [National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs] began its formal count. Using the organization’s data as a baseline, our reporters combed through hundreds of news reports over the past seven years. We talked to dozens of victims’ loved ones and family members, professionals in charge of tracking transgender murders, activists who work to end the violence, lawyers, law enforcement officers and social scientists. Our goal was to find out more about each victim and identify patterns that could help combat the problem. In an effort to elevate the stories of marginalized populations, Mic will continue to track transgender homicides in the future, updating the database as new cases come to light.
