Trans Day of Remembrance (TDOR)
Wednesday, November 20, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Join us for an evening of paper folding and remembrance to show your solidarity for trans lives lost to transphobic violence.
We will be folding flowers together as a way to commemorate the lives of those who have passed. All interested students, faculty and staff are welcome to join us for this portion of the event in room 421 of 21 Sussex Avenue from 4-5:30pm.
Then, as a group, we will bring these flowers to a vigil on the St. George campus which will be held right after this event, beginning at 5:30 pm in the University College Quad (by the Sir Daniel Wilson Residence’s arch). At the vigil, folks are invited to plant a flower down as names are read, as a symbol of remembrance, mourning, and futurity of life. Please keep in mind that you are more than welcome to attend either part or both parts of the event.
We encourage trans positive members of the community to spend this time to reflect upon and discuss the importance of celebrating the lives of trans folks, and how we as a community can better support trans folks during and outside of remembrance days.
