A South Coast event will be marking Transgender Day of Remembrance
It’s a day founded to draw attention to the violence endured by transgender people.
It’s an opportunity to remember those affected by transphobic violence. But the Transgender Day of Remembrance also celebrates the resiliency and power of the transgender and non-conforming community.
"Well Transgender Day of Remembrance is a great opportunity for us to bring the community together and pay attention to the fact that there is a lot of violence that happens to our community," said Emily Kleckner, the founder of the Transverse and one of the organizers of the Oxnard event.
She continued, "But also to celebrate the resilience of our community and show that as we come together in solidarity to remember these folks, we stand together and we're not alone."
The event is Wednesday, November 16, from 6 - 8 p.m. at the Oxnard Performing Arts Center.
