How does this project impact the issue you selected?

According the U.S. Census, over .03% of our Miami-Dade County residents identify as TRANSGENDER, with hundreds arriving each day via the Caribbean & Latin America – often undocumented – making this number much higher.

The law, protections and community services are all but non-existent for the Transgender community.
