March 18, 2008

From Miss Major, Organizing Director, and Melenie Eleneke, TIP member:

We are profoundly grateful for the time and effort the CERD Committee has taken to listen and consider testimony from members of the U.S. transgender women of color community. However, we are deeply disappointed at the absence of concluding observations and recommendations that specifically hold the U.S. accountable for failing to ameliorate the effects of racism on transgender women of color.
