Trans Day of Remembrance Vigil Ceremony at The Center
Join us for a vigil to come together in solidarity and hope, to lift up the lives we have lost to hate violence, and celebrate our powerful community through cultural practices and healing work. This vigil will feature words from teams at The Center and Housing Works, performances from Housing Works community members and the Youth Pride Chorus and a guided breathing ceremony.
Dinner will be provided by Indalesio Tellez, who is a part of Nuestra Mesa BK, a collective of volunteer chefs who are dedicated to raising funds for Brooklyn-based mutual aid organizations. The collective believes in food and land sovereignty, and accessibility to fresh, seasonal, nutritious food for all.
ABOUT TRANS DAY OF REMEMBRANCE
Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) is a day to memorialize those who have been killed as a result of anti-transgender violence and bring attention to the continued brutality endured by the trans and gender-expansive members of our community.
TDOR is also a time for us to gather as a community in support and mutual healing. The day invites us to renew our commitment to deeply caring for one another and resolving to work together to end the injustices trans people worldwide are continually facing. Transgender and gender-expansive folks have always and will always exist, and The Center will be there to support them.
To request an accommodation for this event or with any questions, please contact Nathalie Chara at email@example.com by November 10, 2022.
