Violence against transgender women of colour is an epidemic that plagues our community. Transphobia is institutionalized, especially as it pertains to the criminal justice system and the prison industrial complex. Free CeCe is an entry point into this conversation as it follows CeCe McDonald's growing role in the fight against this injustice.

In June 2011, CeCe McDonald was brutally attacked. She fought back in self-defence, but was unfairly incarcerated as a result. This, however, was just the beginning of her story. An international movement sought to free her and, in the process, CeCe emerged as a leader for the transgender community.

Much like Inside Out's 2016 Audience Award-winner for Best Documentary, MAJOR!, Free CeCe is a rousing depiction of individual and collective strength that will galvanize you. Viewing is essential.
