Transgender Day of Remembrance Friday, Nov. 20th. Luther's PRIDE & BSU organized, students, staff and faculty to join together to pay respect and honor the memory of members of the transgender community murdered in the past year, a group that is also disproportionately composed of people of color.
There has been 271 reported Murdered trans persons from October 1st 2014 to September 30th 2015.
We stand against hate and violence directed at transgender and gender non-conforming people, and let us name and honor those whose voices have been silenced.
