This week has been super awful, but I got the chance to attend a transgender awareness and politics conference by Andrea Jenkins on Wednesday night (thanks to my Transgender Identities class)! Andrea is the first openly transgender Woman of Color to be elected into office! Her speech was powerful and I am so proud to have someone so inspiring in the government of Minnesota โ˜บ  On my way out, I happened to notice that the building we were in had an all-gender inclusive bathroom! Sure, I've seen unisex bathrooms before, but never a bathroom like this! Obviously they're quite different.  As a non-binary person, I am so stoked that this is actually a thing! And with Andrea, Phillippe Cunningham, and Danica Roem's positions in office, I am even more stoked! ๐Ÿ˜„๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰♥ #andreajenkins #phillippecunningham #danicaroem #minnesota #transgender #transgenderrights #transisbeautiful #nonbinary
Last week’s election produced groundbreaking results for the waves of people of color elected to office. New Jersey elected it’s first Black lieutenant governor, Sheila Oliver. She is the second highest ranking official in the state New Jersey. Andrea Jenkins also made headlines as the first black transgender woman elected to public office in the United States. Jenkins was elected to the Minneapolis City Council and during her term as Council Member she hopes to address issues of underserved communities. Wilmot Collins, a Liberian refugee who emigrated to the United States in 1994, became the first Black mayor of city Helena in Montana. Collins who is a delegate for the advocacy Refugee Congress and also serves as an adjunct professor at the University Montana-Helena hopes to address issues around youth homelessness, providing affordable houses and garnering more resources for emergency response. The election results not only demonstrate the changing political landscape of America, a place now where those who are of color, gay, female, or an immigrant can gain a seat in public office. But it demonstrates the resiliency of marginalized and oppressed groups of people, particularly Blacks, who use their own narratives and experiences to make the country we live in safe, inclusive, and prosperous for all. ________________________________________________________________ #triibe #promotetheculture #sheilaoliver #andreajenkins #wilmotcollins #elections #transgender #africa #liberia #africandiaspora

Congratulations to Ashley Bennet, Danica Roem, Andrea Jenkins, and all the other women who made history in last week’s elections. Bennet unseated the NJ incumbent who posted a sexist meme ridiculing the Women’s March. Roem became the first openly transgender person to be elected to a state legislature, ousting one of the most anti-LGBTQIA politicians in America. And Jenkins became the first openly transgender woman of color elected to public office. . . . #ashleybennett #danicaroem #andreajenkins #newjerseywomen #virginiawomen #minneapoliswomen #voteherin #womenvotingpower #sexistmeme #atlanticcounty #localpolitics #localpower #localhero #lgbtqia #womenmakehistory #womeninpolitics #lookwhatshedid

We can see it in the choices made by communities across the US yesterday. Let’s keep fighting for voting rights and for representation in our government. I want to celebrate all of the progressive and ground-breaking candidates who won last night, especially #andreajenkins (Minneapolis City Council) and #danicaroem (Virginia House of Delegates)– two powerful transgender women who are paving the way for future leaders. It is important to note the bravery of #atheagarrison two decades ago, who was the first trans woman to be elected to state legislature." #progress #danicaroem #andreajenkins #lgbt #trans #transisbeautiful #pride
