November 20th – International Transgender Day of Remembrance

Ceremonies are being held worldwide during the month of November to memorialize those who have been killed as a result of anti-transgender hatred or prejudice.  The Transgender Day of Remembrance web site provides a list of events that will be occuring throughout the month, many on November 20th.  They also publish a list of all who have been killed throughout the previous year; this list consists of deaths that were corroborated by media accounts.

This is a senseless and horrifying tragedy.  Please join us in pausing for a moment of reflection to remember those who have perished, and to focus our energies on all the ways we can work together to end the violence.  Statistics_and_other_info____Transgender_Day_of_Remembrance
