Honoring Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR):

On Transgender Day of Remembrance (November 20th), we honor all of the transgender and gender non-conforming lives lost to anti-transgender violence.

  • The Human Rights Campaign has recorded at least 26 transgender and gender non-conforming people whose lives were taken by violent means in 2023.
  • According to HRC, in 2023, 88% of victims were people of color and 54% were Black transgender women. 50% were misgendered or deadnamed by authorities or the press.

Hear from Mallery Jenna Robinson, InReach Young Professionals Board member, below on the significance of TDOR and how to support the TGNC community. Be sure to visit A Hateful Homicide and follow @ahatefulhomicide for more information!
