Janet Mock Launches #GirlsLikeUs Campaign to Empower Trans Women of Color

But Mock does not accept society’s rejection of trans women, emphatically stating in the same post that “I will never depart from my core belief that CeCe and Paige and thousands of other girls like us matter.” Her message, in her blog post and in her speech, is that the lives of girls like herself have inherent value that cannot be taken away, whether girls like her are harassed, imprisoned, or killed.
In her speech, Mock says that she would never have expected, one year ago, that she’d be speaking in front of a crowd about her life as a trans woman. But by speaking her experience and living visibly as a trans woman, Mock challenges concepts of womanhood and makes a space in society for herself and girls like her.

What an amazing woman, and fantastic campaign.
