Devin Allen, a 32-year-old Baltimore photographer, took the cover photo of the forthcoming issue of TIME, showing people lying on the street during a Black Trans Lives Matter protest in Baltimore on June 5, The (Baltimore) Sun reports.

What they're saying: Allen told The Sun, "We leave out the LGBT community, especially when it comes to the black trans community ... The fact that they even have to go and hold a Black Trans Lives Matter march, it speaks for itself. Why do they have to do that? As a straight, black man, I'm going to give [them] the same energy that I give to all my people to that community."

Between the lines: Living at the intersection of two marginalized identities, black trans people are on the receiving end of an inordinate amount of violence.

Democratic nominee Joe Biden and his running mate Sen. Kamala Harris said Wednesday they have spoken with the family of Jacob Blake, a Black man who was shot at least seven times in the back by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

The big picture: Protests have erupted across the country as Blake remains in the hospital paralyzed from the waist down. Two people were shot and killed during clashes in Kenosha overnight, resulting in the arrest of a 17-year-old male. President Trump said Wednesday that Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers (D) will allow "federal assistance" to help quell the violence.

Yes, but: This is 2020, when nothing matters.

Higher education expands its climate push

New or expanded climate initiatives are popping up at several universities, a sign of the topic's rising prominence and recognition of the threats and opportunities it creates.

Why it matters: Climate and clean energy initiatives at colleges and universities are nothing new, but it shows expanded an campus focus as the effects of climate change are becoming increasingly apparent, and the world is nowhere near the steep emissions cuts that scientists say are needed to hold future warming in check.
