Transgender Day of Remembrance Vigil
Every year LGBTQIA+ people and their allies gather to remember those who have died by violence for no other reason than because they are transgender.
Every year there are far too many stories. It is painful to hear… but it is necessary. Come join us for a short program to learn, hear powerful speakers, receive resources available in the community, and light candles of remembrance for those no longer with us and be grateful for those who are.
