TDOR SF- 2020 Trans Day of Remembrance – #MoreThanAHashTag
November 20, 2020, 6PM -7:30pm, Facebook Live
We hope you will join us on November 20th to honor those we have lost, and build momentum to end the violence against trans (transgender) and GNC (Gender Non-Conforming) communities.
TDoR specifically addresses the deaths of trans and GNC folks. Despite increased visibility, trans people continue to be murdered in unprecedented numbers, and trans women of color are bearing the brunt of it.
This year’s main commemoration will be a virtual presentation due to the Covid 19 pandemic. It will be on Friday, November 20, Friday, 6pm- 7:30pm. Via Facebook Live.
The event will have specially invited speakers and guests, a video of the “reading of names”, trans community spotlights and a tribute to Monica Roberts. This year’s emcee is Monique Campbell.
For this year, a “care package” is produced to give to trans & GNC folks especially to brown and black trans siblings. The “care package” is a to remind them that we care about them and to remind folks that we are a community and can call on each other for support and companionship especially in times of trouble. The TDOR Package will consist of an exclusive TDOR scented candle, an LED resin made rose, hand sanitizer, gifts from Sephora, a safety kit, a specially designed TDoR face mask, and resources of different trans organizations.
This year’s TDoR is brought to you by a planning committee composed of community members and coordinated by SF Transgender Empowerment Advocacy Mentorship Program( SF TEAM).

TDoR is a genuine tribute to those who have lost their lives to anti-transgender hatred or prejudice.

Together we can put an end to the violence against trans people!
