2017 NC TRANSGENDER AWARENESS WEEK & NC TRANSGENDER DAY OF REMEMBRANCE

In remembrance of those who have been lost due to transphobia and to recognize the continued violence against the transgender community, Equality NC observes Transgender Day of Remembrance with the rest of the world on Monday, November 20th. Every year, the names of those lost are recited at events across the country, and we are honored to partner with organizations throughout our state to offer our solidarity.

In the days leading up to that observance, many communities participate in Transgender Awareness Week to help bring visibility to issues faced by transgender and nonbinary people. Click here and join us at one of these events near you:
