Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) is this Sunday, November 20.
For many people in our community, TDOR is a day of heartache.
It’s a day for grieving and honoring our transgender family, friends, and peers whose lives were ended too soon by confounding violence and discrimination.
For many, it’s really important to join with community on Transgender Day of Remembrance—to feel solidarity in mourning, and to help lift each other up.
More transgender people have been senselessly killed this year than any year on record. And with an uptick in transphobic rhetoric from our state houses to the streets—there is a justifiable fear permeating the community.
That’s why now, more than ever before, it’s critical that we recognize TDOR and that we come together in support of our transgender brothers and sisters—to stand with them in solidarity, in love, and in the fight to win critically needed non-discrimination protections to help put an end to the violence.
We will be honoring TDOR and the transgender people who are no longer with us in Atlanta this Sunday. There is a space for you at the table. Click here to find a list of events and RSVP.
In mourning, together.
