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:
Fever or chills
