*You are invited to attend the 2018 Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR)
on* *Friday, November 16**th**. Doors open at 6pm; the event begins at
6:30pm and ends at 8:30pm. TDOR will be hosted by Trans-E-Motion and Fresno
State’s Cross Cultural and Gender Center at Fresno State **5241 N Maple

The annual Transgender Day of Remembrance is an event to honor the lives of
transgender individuals who died from murder or suicide. It is also an
opportunity to raise awareness about transgender existence in our own
community. This event is intended to provide a safe space for transgender
people and their allies to embrace their identities while memorializing
those whose lives were cut short.

The event will feature singing, poetry, and an art display. Inspirational
speakers will address the topic of transgender experiences, gender
diversity, inclusion, and the importance of raising awareness about
violence and transphobia. Information on supportive crisis services, local
resources, and organizations will be present at our resource fair. Finally,
a reading of the names will be held to honor transgender individuals who
have died by violent crimes or suicide this past year (November
2017-November 2018). RSVP on facebook

*In addition:*

*On Tuesday, November 20**th** at 4:30pm* Trans-E-Motion will hold a rally
and protest against transgender violence at Blackstone and Nees in Fresno
(we will meet at the northeast corner by In N Out). Join us as we demand
justice for our fallen transgender community members. Now is the time to
advocate for the transgender community. Signs will be provided but you are
encouraged to bring your own. We will hear a few speeches from local
community organizers educate and speak out against malevolence towards our
transgender community members. Join us – your visibility is your support. RSVP
