TRANS LIVES MATTER!
On November 20, Trans Day of Remembrance, Gabriela New Jersey, in collaboration with Filipino Association at Stevens Tech, will be screening “Call Her Ganda” —a documentary that sheds light on the life and case of Jennifer Laude and her family’s struggle for justice.
Jennifer Laude was a 26-year-old trans Filipina woman who was brutally murdered by US marine Joseph Scott Pemberton on October 11, 2014, in the Philippines.
Jennifer’s death is one example of the violence committed against Filipino women, as their rights, safety, and Philippine sovereignty are sacrificed for unfair military defense agreements between the US. Such human rights violations and violence against women, children, and the LGBTQIGNC+ community will only continue to worsen in the Philippines. Honor Jennifer and all trans lives by exposing the harmful impacts of US militarization in our communities back home, especially on Filipinas.
Call Her Ganda (Dir. & Prod. PJ Raval) was an official selection of the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival, 2018 Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival, Best Documentary Grand Jury Award Winner at the 2018 Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, and Grand Jury Best Documentary Special Mention at Outfest 2018. Raval has partnered with GABRIELA USA chapters to ensure Jennifer’s story is told.
Let us RISE against transmisogyny and violence against women, RESIST US militarization, and UNITE for the liberation, safety, and self-determination for all women!
