In honor of Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR), we invite the community to join us at San Mateo Public Library on Monday, November 20, from 4:30-6:30pm.
Please view a recording of the Program on our YouTube Channel at:
TDOR honors trans people who have been murdered simply by being themselves (the highest number are Black Transgender women). Ultimately, we want to live in a world where transgender people are protected and safe from transphobia and violence.
This year's event includes speaker Dana Johnson (they/them/theirs), an Altar, Reading of the Names, and a Call to Action from Keynote Speaker Kai Stowers. Creating change is difficult; especially when we grieve for those who have lost their lives simply for being themselves. Besides honoring those who have died, we also are creating ways for our community to build awareness and advocate to eliminate the murder of transgender people.
Transgender Day of Remembrance is adjacent to United Against Hate Week 2023. Learn more on the County's website about how you can take part in other activities throughout the week from November 12-18.
Event Location: Oak Room, San Mateo Public Library, 55 W. 3rd Ave, San Mateo, CA 94402

Provided in Partnership
The Transgender Day of Remembrance event is a collaboration between several community organizations around San Mateo County. Please visit each group's website to learn more about how they support the LGBTQIA+ community. This is where "ally" becomes a verb and we all take part in creating inclusive spaces at home, at work, and at school.
