Transgender Day of Remembrance  – United States Department of State

Human RightsTransgender Day of Remembrance  - United States Department of State

Each year on November 20, the world recognizes Transgender Day of Remembrance – a day to commemorate the transgender, non-binary, and gender non-conforming persons who are targeted and killed for living authentically and courageously.  Trans individuals are a part of every country, every culture, and every faith tradition.  The United States honors Transgender Day of Remembrance to affirm the humanity and human rights of transgender persons globally.

Transgender persons experience disproportionately high levels of homicide and assault.  Their families and loved ones too often see no justice.  Countries around the world must ensure every hate crime is fully investigated.

This year, we re-commit ourselves to ensuring acceptance and support for transgender, non-binary, and gender non-conforming persons.  It is everyone’s responsibility to ensure trans persons can live full lives of dignity, without fear of violence or harm.  Until then, we will continue to speak loudly and clearly to end transphobic violence and homicide.
