TRANSGENDER DAY OF REMEMBRANCE

untitled-1cwg24Today is International Day of the Trans Memory, or Transgender Day of Remembrance. This date honors the trans people who died victims of transphobia & intolerance. It’s also a day to demand JUSTICE!

How can you participate in the Transgender Day of Remembrance?

Participate in the Transgender Day of Remembrance by attending or organizing a vigil on November 20 to honor all those whose lives were lost to anti-transgender violence that year.  Vigils are typically hosted by local transgender advocates or LGBTQ organizations, and held at community centers, parks, places of worship, and other venues.

The vigil often involves reading a list of the names of those who died that year.
