Loved skiing so much that she was buried in her École polytechnique ski team jacket. After her murder, her teammates wore patches with her initials on their uniforms.

Had fled (communist) Poland with her husband 2 years earlier. They were together when she was murdered. Her husband later said they had come to Canada because they believed it was the safest place.

At the last LGBTQ+ forum, I read the names of 18 Black trans women who had been killed in 2019. Last night, we learned about another cruel loss, Itali Marlowe.…
We need a president who will #SayTheirNames and fight to end this epidemic. We must ensure that trans women of color—and all LGBTQ+ people—aren't just safe from violence and discrimination, but also have every opportunity to thrive and succeed.

Someone rushed the stage at #BigIdeas and taken the mic from @KamalaHarris’ hand — he is quickly apprehended and ushered offstage before much of anything.
Harris reenters to chants of “Kamala! Kamala!"
@KamalaHarris Harris won’t make the Obama mistake — asked about Medicare for all, she says the fear is losing your doctor.
“You shouldn’t assume that that’s going to happen, because it’s *very likely* you will keep your doctor,” she says. “Ain’t nobody trying to fight for their insurance co."
@KamalaHarris .@KamalaHarris gets a big cheer when she refers to the president as “her”-
“The president of the US has ...the powers that come with this (microphone) and when this thing is then in her hands it must be used in a way that is about elevating the public discourse"

1/ On 02.10.19, a 911-call was made, reporting a black man fell asleep in his car & blocked a Taco Bell's drive through. Six polices showed up, w/ guns in hands & minutes later, estimated over 25 rounds were shot & killed the black man. #LetUsLive #AB392…
2/ . The body-cam finally is released to reveal that the 6 officers was not trying figure out how wake this black man up, how to get his attention, but rather, get ready to “snatch his ass [out of the car]”, & “If he reaches for it, you know what to do”. Basically, shoot him!
3/ Full disclosure, a gun was sitting on this black’s man lap. But does that mean illegal? No. And if this man was asleep, worrying about him grabbing it before the six police officers who already have guns in their hands in ready position is reasonable? Probably not!
