Social Sustainability Month: Trans Day of Remembrance
Sunday, November 20, 2011 - 4:00pm to Sunday, November 20, 2011 - 7:00pm

Location: Hoffman Hall

This event largely focuses on increasing visibility of those who are most effected by violence: transwomen of color. Although the day primarily memorializes those lost to hate crimes, it also serves as a forum for transgender communities and allies to raise awareness around the threat of violence faced by gender variant people and the persistence of prejudice felt by the transgender community. As expressed on Gwendolyn Ann Smith's site, the guiding principle for the national Transgender Day of Remembrance is summed up in George Santayana's immortal words, "Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it."
