Thanks for using my photos, @ggwash and @TheJessicaRaven, and for the important piece on disparities in safety.
Thanks also to Washington, DC for leading the nation in the conversation and gathering first-of-its-kind data:
A 2017 DC Human Rights study showed that 48 percent of DC employers preferred a less qualified cisgender applicant over a more qualified transgender applicant. The study found that employment discrimination rates were highest in DC’s restaurant industry — and in every industry — the unemployment rate is higher among trans people of color.
I wrote about this study previously:

Not everything has been done that can be, as Ruby Corado (@casarubydc) famously said:
As local businesses and agencies work to respond to sexual harassment and make public spaces safer, they must also ask themselves: safer for who?
