featured post: DC: Transwoman Murdered. Vigil Friday
I first heard about this yesterday via a friend’s gchat status message. Then a few emails came into my inbox today while I was busy at work and, I assumed, into the inbox of our DC events editor. I apologize for not getting notice about this horrible crime and subsequent vigil out sooner.
From Brian Watson, Director of Transgendered Health Empowerment (THE):
I am sure most of you have heard of the double stabbing that happened on last night here in NW DC near the offices of T.H.E. One young lady only 21 years old, a client of T.H.E’s and HIPS Joshua Mack known to us a “Na Na Boo” was killed. In response to this attack T.H.E. is in the process of organizing a candlelight vigil to be held tomorrow night at 6:30pm at the site of the incident 209 Q ST NW. We are asking that all community members come out to show their support and condemn this recent violence and urge the community to come forward with any leads. The police are offering a $25,000 reward in this case. Please spread the word. Thank you
Vigil for Joshua Mack Vigil, Friday August 28, 2009. 6:30 PM, 209 Q St NW.
