On Transgender Day of Remembrance, we take time to intentionally honor the transgender people whom we have lost to anti-transgender violence. A disproportionate number of those victims are young Black transgender women. To learn more about how this intersectional violence lands on this population, we invite you to review this blog entry, which influenced our planning for this event.

From the planning committee,
Sarah Williams, Rebekah Keazer, Chris Paige
