Transgender Day of Remembrance
November 20, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 5:30 pm
The International Transgender Day of Remembrance falls on November 20th, in the middle of Transgender Awareness Week. From 2pm-5pm, play interactive games around the CDI to learn about facts, symbols, and vocabulary related to the Trans* community. When you’re ready, test your knowledge with a short quiz. If you pass, your name gets entered into a gift card raffle at the end of the day! At 5pm, join us for a vigil in remembrance of those who have lost their lives to transphobic violence. The names and stories of American lives lost to violence against transgender people will be read aloud, and tea lights lit by pictures of each victim of these hate crimes. Participants will observe a moment of silence, and are encouraged to join in a discussion afterwards.
