About this Event
The Transgender Day of Remembrance serves several purposes. It raises public awareness of hate crimes against transgender people, an action that current media doesn’t perform. The day is for publicly mourning and honoring the lives of our brothers and sisters who might otherwise be forgotten. It reminds nontransgender people that we are their sons, daughters, parents, friends and lovers. The day also gives our allies a chance to step forward with us and stand in vigil, memorializing those of us who’ve died by anti-transgender violence.
Although the GLBT Center is not conducting an on-campus event to mark Transgender Day of Remembrance, we are offering a free Transgender Day of Remembrance toolkit. To get the toolkit, fill out this signup sheet.
