Hundreds of activists called for justice for Kiesha Jenkins at Saturday's 5th annual Philly Trans March.

Jenkins, 22, was murdered early Tuesday by a group of five or six men, making her the 20th transgender woman to be killed in the United States this year, and the 18th transgender woman of color. Police believe Jenkins, who was shot twice in the back, was a victim of a robbery gone wrong.

“We mourn the loss of Kiesha Jenkins, London Kiki Channel, and too many others,” said Ted Martin, executive director of Equality PA, referring to the death of Channel, a 21-year-old transgender woman who was fatally stabbed in May inside an abandoned house in Philadelphia.

“Violence against transgender women, and particularly women of color, is too commonplace and it must stop,” he added.

Activists chanted “Hey, hey, ho, ho, transphobia has got to go” and carried signs which read, “Justice for Kiesha Jenkins.”

Katrina Robinson told NBC10 that she knew Jenkins and other transgender people who have been murdered.

“This has been happening for so long, and it's difficult to see that this is happening to people in my community,” Robinson said. “I know she suffered, and it was terrible because she was alone.”
