Why do we need to be more tolerant of people who are trans?
This year, we’re seeing the rise of trans people of color.
A study conducted by the University of Chicago, released on Wednesday, revealed that one in four African-American trans people had faced some form of violence, and one in three reported having been assaulted in the past year.
The researchers found that more than a third of trans women of color reported being targeted or attacked for being trans, which, the researchers found, was a clear sign that people of all races are facing discrimination.
The authors say these attacks are more likely to happen if trans people are not recognized as women or people of colour.
But it’s not just trans people who face violence.
The National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE), a non-profit advocacy organization that focuses on gender equity, has been tracking attacks on trans people for years.
They recently reported on an attack on a trans woman of color in Chicago, which is a case study of the types of attacks that trans people face.
This was followed by a recent incident in Oklahoma where a transgender man was stabbed to death.
The attack came amid an effort by the state of Oklahoma to ban “bathroom bills” that would allow people to use bathrooms and locker rooms that match their gender identity.
In addition to the violence that trans women face, the NCTE researchers say trans people also face significant barriers to accessing health care, as the group found.
One in five trans people in the United States lack health insurance coverage, which disproportionately impacts trans women.
The study found that trans health insurance rates for trans women ranged from 6% to 23%, and those rates are higher among African-Americans than whites.
The problem isn’t just trans women, the report also found that many trans people struggle to afford health care.
One trans woman, identified only as J, said she had to choose between paying for medical care and paying for housing.
“It’s really hard,” she said.
“When I’m in my own place, I just don’t know what I can afford.
It’s really difficult.”
The report also looked at the lack of access to healthcare for trans people.
While healthcare coverage for trans individuals varies, most people in rural areas have no access to medical care, according to the NCTAE.
The report found that only 18% of rural trans people received any kind of health care services, and about 60% were uninsured.
The NCTE report found some progress, however, with the number of trans youth living in poverty dropping from 27% in 2014 to just 16% in 2016.
In fact, a significant number of the people who experienced homelessness, including trans youth, were trans people, the study found.
Trans people are also more likely than white trans people to experience violence, according the report.
Nearly one in five transgender people of race reported experiencing some form or another of violence in their lifetime, according a report released last year by the National Center on Transgender Equity.
The organization found that 60% of trans individuals experienced violence, compared to 26% of cisgender people.
A report published last year found that 1 in 10 trans people were victims of intimate partner violence, as well as a large majority of trans men.
The research group also found significant racial disparities in the rates of domestic violence, which can result in the loss of a spouse or partner.
“There are some important differences in gender identity, and the rates are substantially higher for trans than for non-trans people,” said the NCTeE.
“In general, it’s trans people that are more at risk for domestic violence than trans people.”
Trans people of Color are also at a higher risk of being incarcerated than their cisgender counterparts.
In 2016, the U.S. Department of Justice released data that showed that transgender women of colour were more likely then white trans women to be incarcerated.
In comparison, trans people from other races were more than twice as likely to be in jail.
The Justice Department also noted that trans youth are disproportionately incarcerated.
“Trans youth are particularly vulnerable to prison,” said a report by the Department of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.
“They are at greater risk of incarceration and detention and of being placed in solitary confinement, and they are more than five times as likely than their non-binary counterparts to be on probation.”
