TRANS DAY OF REMEMBRANCE 2020
Join us as we remember those in the transgender community whose lives have been lost to violence, marginalization and prejudice, as well as to renew our commitment to creating a brighter future. This event is free and open to trans and gender nonconforming community members, as well as friends, family and allies.
The evening will feature performances from the Youth Pride Chorus, opening remarks from Kalki Subramaniam, a transgender rights activist, artist and actress from Tamil Nadu, India, keynote remarks from Andrea Jenkins, the first black openly transgender woman elected to city council in Minneapolis, a reading of names followed by a healing ceremony, community shares and live support by Center staff.
We also invite you to share your personal reflections of hope, grief, solidarity, and whatever other thoughts or feelings you wish, to be aired during the event.
Submissions can be shared here by Friday, November 13, 2020.
