The Student Animal Legal Defense Fund (SALDF) stands in solidarity with Black Lives Matter, and writes to give voice to our heartbreak and outrage at the murder of not only Mr. George Floyd, but countless other Black Americans who have been murdered as a result of systemic racism. We include here the name of Tony McDade, a black trans man recently killed by the police; and Iyanna Dior, a black trans woman recently attacked and beaten, in order to acknowledge the particular difficulties that black trans people face in our society, which often go ignored.
