Transgender Day of Remembrance

Tonight at the Board meeting for Connecticut TransAdvocacy Coalition we talked about our plans for the Transgender Day of Remembrance on Monday November 20. Right now our plans are to hold a short candlelight vigil at 6:30 on the steps of Hartford City Hall and read off the names of those who have been murdered this year. Then we will go over to the MCC Church at the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd at 155 Wyllys Street in Hartford where we will hold a short service at 7:15. This years theme is “Carrying the Flame Forward” and will focus on the next generation of Trans-Youth.
This is a world wide event, I ask you to look up a Day of Remembrance memorial service in your area and attend the service.

I am not sure I will be in town this year for the Day of Remembrance, but I was so moved at last year's service at the MCC.
