Friday is the annual Transgender Day of Remembrance.
Founded in 1999, Transgender Day of Remembrance is a day to remember those who were killed due to anti-transgender violence.
The Human Rights Campaign says there have been more transgender homicide victims in 2015 than any other year.
In that group, at least 21 transgender people were killed in the U.S., most of them transgender women of color.
And it's partly because of this violence that the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus started a transgender task force earlier this month.
The task force aims to improve law enforcement's reporting on anti-transgender violence through better training, more consistent policies and the crea tion of a national database for anti-transgender violence. (Video via Human Rights Campaign)
