Each day transgender people are faced with bias that affects all areas of life. The National Transgender Discrimination Survey, Injustice at Every Turn: A Look at Black Respondents reports, Black trans and gender non-conforming people reported experiencing the highest levels of discrimination of all transgender people based on the combination of anti-transgender bias with structural and individual racism.
