Join Us for Transgender Day of Remembrance, Wed., Nov. 18

Please join Project Pride and the Arts and Entertainment Board on Wed., Nov. 18 in the main lobby of the PUB at 12:30 p.m. to commemorate Transgender Day of Remembrance and acknowledge that Black Trans Women are one of the most targeted groups in the United States.

According to BlackLivesMatter, the average life expectancy for Black Trans Women is 35 years. Please see this article for details of the high number of Black Trans Women killed so far in 2015.

Despite the recent epidemic of violence against Trans people in general, and Black Trans Women in particular, violent targeting of the trans community has been met with silence and erasure.

End the silence. Join us on Wed., Nov. 18 at 12:30 p.m. in the PUB lobby.
