TransAction South Dakota (TASD) participated in the Step Forward to Prevent Suicide event on June 10th, 2018!
Transgender people are disproportionately impacted by suicide compared to cisgender people. Research shows that in their lifetime, 41% of transgender people attempt suicide. This is driven by the stigma and rejection that transgender people endure. We participated in this event to build awareness about this, as well as the strengths of our community to be resilient in the face of the marginalization that many of us face on a daily basis.
