Caitlyn Jenner is a powerful woman, and she's using her fame to help a cause that's close to her heart: promoting a message of tolerance and acceptance for trans individuals. 

At least 21 transgender women were murdered this year, making Jenner's new PSA (opens in new tab), released today in honor of Transgender Day of Remembrance, all the more necessary. Alongside trans advocate Chandi Moore, Jenner keeps her message simple: "No one should be killed simply because they are transgender."
