Mourning for Nakhia Williams

Last week, Nakhia Williams, of the Louisville transgender community, died in the hospital, of wounds she received from a shooting on August 20. Wimminwise is currently seeking more information about the memorial fund being raised to assist Nakhia’s family with expenses.

(The local blog Transgriot commented on the community’s loss, and on local media coverage of the event, last week.)

Our hearts and prayers go out to Nakhia’s family, friends, and loved ones. We pray especially for an end to violence against difference.

About Ha_Qohelet

Ha_Qohelet is a transliteration of Hebrew definite article plus a feminine participle, all together meaning "the (feminine) one who assembles" or who calls together. Qohelet is the title of one of the books of the Hebrew Scripture, known in English as Ecclesiastes. The Women's Center at LPTS feels the epithet of Qohelet is a fitting one for what we do and are. The Women's Center is, indeed, a caller-together, a caller-to-wisdom, and an assembler -- of people, of ideas, of actions, and ultimately, we hope, of transformations in the world. In this context, Ha_Qohelet is the Director of the Women's Center, and Editor-in-Chief of Wimminwise.
