Transgender Day of Remembrance

Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) is an annual observance on November 20 that honors the memory of the transgender people whose lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence.

The last three years have been followed with record highs of transgender and non-binary violent deaths, with 2020 being the the worst recorded year in history for murders and violence of these often underreported hate crimes. 

According to Human Rights Campaign (HRC), “2022 has already seen at least 32 transgender people fatally shot or killed by other violent means.” “We say “at least” because too often these stories go unreported — or misreported,” HRC added.
