Sunday, Nov. 18 - 2018 TRANSGENDER DAY OF REMEMBRANCE
Transgender Day of Remembrance takes place each November, as an opportunity for communities to come together and remember transgender, gender non-binary, biologically intersex people, and those perceived to be transgender who have lost their lives over the last year from transphobic violence.
The Transgender Day of Remembrance service raises public awareness of hate crimes against transgender people, mourns and honors the lives lost, gives allies a chance to step forward and commit to action to create safe transgender inclusive communities, and gives local transgender people the opportunity to witness non transgender people literally standing in support.
Transgender women of color and people experiencing unemployment, poverty, and homelessness are the people most at risk. Working to create equality for people of color, respect for religious and ethnic diversity, reduce homophobia, improve local employment opportunities, living wage, and decreasing homelessness, celebrating who you are as an individual and fostering an inclusive live and let live culture are also measures that can reduce risk of transphobic hate crimes
