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 2020 is sponsored by the following:

2020 In-Person TDoR rally and march

TDoR 2020 #MoreThanAHashtag
Dear community,
   We as the Trans Day of Remembrance committee would love to invite you to march in celebration and mourning of the lives of our Trans Siblings who have passed this previous year. This Monday, November 16th evening march and rally is in addition to our Trans Day of Remembrance set to happen on Friday, November 20th.
   This year has been a tough one, and we have lost too many of our family. On top of unjust and violent murders, we are also experiencing a global pandemic that has affected our communities in great numbers, and we have lost great leaders to natural causes as well.
   We know that the grieving process is different for everyone, and that many of our families choose to celebrate the lives of those who left us. So, in an effort to heal together, we want to invite you to celebrate the lives of the people who we have lost and remember them as we continue to fight for the right to live happy, fruitful lives without constant discrimination and violence.
   We will be meeting in front of City Hall and hearing speeches from local leaders. Afterwards, we will march to the historic Transgender District at the corner of Turk and Taylor for more speeches and some music as our closing ceremony.
   With all that being said, we are putting the health and safety of our community first and encourage all attendees to do the same.
We are requiring all attendees to wear a mask and social distance at all times during the event.
If on the day of the rally you are showing any of the following symptoms:

Sore throat

2018 Transgender Day of Remembrance

TDoR SF – 2018 Trans Day of Remembrance  #EnoughIsEnough

Tuesday, November 20th, 2018.

5:30pm  – 6:00pm/Candlelight March, from San Francisco City Hall, 1 block, to UC Hastings

6:00pm- 8:00pm/TDOR program at UC Hastings, Louis B. MAYER Auditorium 200 McAllister St

8:00pm-9:00pm/ Short reception with light refreshments

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.

Please register at our Eventbrite page.

In 2018 there were unprecedented attacks against the existence of the trans and GNC communities. The government in power in Washington DC tried to “erase” us, by removing transgender people’s equal access to health care, housing, education and fair treatment under the law. But TDoR specifically addresses the deaths of trans folk. Despite increased visibility, trans people continue to be murdered in unprecedented numbers, and trans women of color are bearing the brunt of it. As of mid-October 2018, 22 homicides of trans Americans have been reported here in the United States. This is not acceptable.

TDoR is brought to you by a volunteer planning team and community partners including:
