United FRONT’s Trans Justice Campaign is hosting an event and vigil for the Transgender Day of Remembrance. We are remembering those we have lost to anti-trans violence and prejudice from November 20th, 2016 to November 19th, 2017. We will have two speakers, a reading of the names of trans people who have been murdered over the past year, some artistic expression, and a community potluck. We will particularly be centering trans women of color, as they are targeted disproportionately.
We will have ASL and español interpreters. The space is wheelchair accessible. There are single and multi stall any gender restrooms. We ask that people refrain from wearing perfumes and colognes to allow people with medical sensitivities to attend. While this event is being held at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Eugene and they are offering their support and feel strongly about supporting our cause, this is not a religious event. People of any belief systems (or not) are welcome. We will have crisis intervention counselors available for support and processing grief. Childcare will be available. Community-based security will be present.
