Trans* Action is hosting an afternoon of learning, discussion, and storytelling to remember those trans* people who's lives have been taken.
Trans* Action is hosting an afternoon of learning, discussion, and storytelling to remember those trans* people who's lives have been taken by others or by themselves; and to remember that we are still here, living, breathing, resisting, loving - trying to find ways to thrive. Consistently, when we look at the statistics of anti-LGBTQ hate violence, we see that it is trans*women and trans*women of color who face the brunt of hate violence and murders; and it those women who's lives we tend to forget quickest in mainstream LGB movements, particularly trans* women of color who are incarcerated.
There is a need for us not just remember those of us who are gone, but those of us who are are on the inside of the prison industrial complex, as well as those of us who survive on the outside.
Trans* 101 Workshop: 4:30-6:00
Cruel and Unusual Film Screening + Discussion: 6:00-7:40
Moment of Silence and Storytelling: 7:40-8:00
Letter writing afterwards.
