Demonstrators will gather at the station (3030 14th Street NW) at 5 p.m. today according to a Facebook event page.
Organized by Mariposas Nueva Generación, the demonstration calls for an end to violence and homicides that target transgender people throughout the country.
“We are sick of being harassed when we walk down the street,” reads an excerpt from the event page. “We are tired of being attacked just for being ourselves. The violence needs to stop. We refuse to live in fear another day.”
The rally coincides with a series of Transgender Awareness Week and Transgender Day of Resilience, events across the country.
This is the second of two planned D.C. protests. The first took place in Mount Vernon Square last night.
