In 2019, the American Medical Association classified violence against transgender people in the U.S. as an epidemic. According to the Human Rights Campaign, as of July 2020 at least 26 transgender people have been killed, already surpassing the total from last year. The majority of these victims are Black trans women. Many deaths also go unreported, and victims are often misgendered.
