Fernielle was found dead in suspicious circumstances in her apartment in the Bronx.
Fernielle Mary Mora, a beloved trans woman of color in the Bronx, was killed earlier this month after her safety was threatened. Not only did the NYPD drag their feet investigating, but they left the evidence in record heat for 2 weeks while the detective took a vacation!
Fernielle Mary Mora's memorial fund is on GoFundMe. Her death impacts not only the trans community but also her immediate family. Hopefully, this is a wake-up call that trans people still face extreme violence in "progressive" cities.
