Rainbow Community Center – Transgender Day of Remembrance

Please join us for our Transgender Day of Remembrance Vigil in Todos Santos Park on Sunday, November 20th from 6-7pm.

At Rainbow Community Center over the past several years we have shifted our mission, vision and values in order to center and serve our most marginalized in community. Transgender folks oftentimes face the most barriers within the LGBTQIA+ community, including transphobic hate and violence, as well as a lack of access and resources. Specifically, nationally black and latinx transwomen face the highest rates of violence and hate out of any single demographic in our country. These conditions and systemic issues can prevent trans community members from being able to live the full, healthy and comfortable lives that they deserve.

We hope to see you on Sunday November 20th from 6-7pm to honor those we have lost to transphobic acts of violence and hate, and to suicide. We know that in this work, it takes the entire community, including our allies, to create positive social change. It’s important to come together to not only mourn and celebrate trans community members we have lost, but to also raise awareness of this vital issue. Please RSVP if you plan to attend the vigil, to cristina@rainbowcc.org.

With gratitude,

The entire Staff and Board of Rainbow Community Center
