TDOR 2015, Friday, November 20

#TDoRSF2015 , Transgender Day of Remembrance, San Francisco, 2015

This year’s event will take place on Friday, November 20, 2015.

SF LGBT Center – 1800 Market Street, SF, CA
6pm to 8:30pm

Please join us at the SF LGBT Community Center for the 17th annual Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR) on Friday, November 20th, 2015. Transgender Day of Remembrance is a genuine tribute to those who have lost their lives to anti-transgender hatred or prejudice. This day serves a purpose to raise awareness of the threat of abuse and violence faced by the transgender community, as well as their families and friends.

What is TDoR?

The number of reported cases of trans-phobic based hate crimes has more than doubled since 1999 when the first TDoR was held in San Francisco on a cold and rainy night. TDoR occurs globally on the 20th of November. This day also acts to bring visibility and momentum to a call to action to end the hatred and ignorance that the transgender community faces daily.

History

The Transgender Day of Remembrance was founded in 1999 by Gwendolyn Ann Smith, a trans woman who is a graphic designer, columnist, and activist, to memorialize the murder of Rita Hester in Allston, Massachusetts. Since its inception, TDoR has been held annually on the 20th of November, and quickly evolved from a local gathering started by Smith into an International Day of Action. In 2013, TDoR was observed in over 200 cities throughout more than 20 countries.

We are looking for volunteers to help make this happen! Please contact us at volunteer@TDoRSF.org or just click the VOLUNTEER button above.
