TDOR and Transgender Awareness Week

Transgender Awareness Week spans November 14-20, with the final day being Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR). Transgender Awareness Week is a time when trans people and their allies organize to battle anti-trans fear, bigotry, and hatred within their communities. Transgender Day of Remembrance allows folks time to memorialize those who were killed due to anti-transgender hatred or prejudice
 
We've assembled some resources to help your GSA plan for these events. Additionally, you can connect with other participants and organizers using the hashtags #TransWk and #TDOR on social media.
