The temperature was 101 degrees on June 17, the day before Howe died, when his friends said he was out in the sun with limited access to water and before he died the following morning.

HRC is deeply saddened to learn of the death of Dede Ricks, a 33-year-old Black transgender woman who was shot and killed in Detroit on August 27th. Dede’s death is at least the 28th violent killing of a transgender or gender non-conforming person in 2022 and the second killing of a Black transgender woman in Detroit within a month, following the death of Hayden Davis in July. We say “at least” because too often these deaths go unreported — or misreported.
