    Remembrance of Bias Crime Victims Held on Anniversary of Trans Murder








    (Louisville, KY) Nakhia "Nikki" Williams was a proud transgender woman, a writer and painter, who was deeply involved in her community. She was brutally murdered in Louisville on August 20, 2008, a few days shy of her 30th birthday. This Monday, August 20--the anniversary of Nikki's murder--the Fairness Campaign will join her family to remember Nikki and all victims of bias-motivated violent crime at the site of her murder, 15th and Market Streets, 10:30 a.m.

    Pinwheels will be distributed at the gathering symbolizing hope of ending all bias-motivated violent crime.

    "With the recent Sikh temple shooting, the assault on a young lesbian girl in Louisville, and the brutal attack of a Nebraska lesbian, it is necessary to further the discussion of ending prejudice and bias-based violent crime in America," shared Fairness Campaign co-coordinator Keith Brooks.

    WHAT: Pinwheels of Hope--A Remembrance of All Victims of Bias-Motivated Violent Crime

    WHEN: Monday, August 20, 10:30 a.m. (anniversary of Nakhia's murder)

    WHERE: 15th & Market Streets in Downtown Louisville (site of Nakhia's murder)

    WHO: Nakhia's sister, Nicole
    Fairness supporters
