Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) vowed Thursday that as president she would read the names of transgender victims of violence in the White House Rose Garden every year.
“Here’s a promise I made: I will go to the Rose Garden once every year to read the names of transgender women, of people of color, who have been killed in the past year,” Warren said during the PBS News Hour/Politico debate in Los Angeles.
“I will make sure that we read their names so that as a nation we are forced to address the particular vulnerability on homelessness,” she continued. “I would change the rules now that put people in prison based on their birth sex identification rather than their current identification.
“I will do everything I can to make sure that we are an America that leaves no one behind,” she added.
