TRIGGER WARNING: murder death transphobia violence It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Mel Groves. Mel Robert Groves was a 25 year old Black Trans man from Jackson, Mississippi. He was murdered. The news outlets are already misgendering Mel and using his old name. Mel was shot multiple times. It was reported that he pulled up to Merit Health Hospital and collapsed outside his vehicle. He was taken to the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC) in Jackson where he died on Monday. The motive is unknown, but we know the violence that happens to trans people in our communities. Mel had even shared that he feared for his life because he was trans in Jackson. He was the chosen family of our Executive Director Quentin Bell, former TKO Youth Ambassador(formerly known as the anchor program), and farmer for TKO Society’s garden program. He was a Plant Soil Scientist from TU who loved agriculture and animals. TKO leadership is in Jackson, Mississippi trying to find real answers. Help us. Please contact Mississippi media outlets and demand that they stop misgendering him.
