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.
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 a genuine tribute to those who have lost their lives to anti-transgender hatred or prejudice. This day serves to raise awareness of the abuse and violence faced by the trans community, as well as our families, friends, and cis allies.
The event will be wheel-chair accesible, ASL and Spanish Translation will be provided. If you have questions please contact us at info@TDoRSF.org .
