Wednesday: Poets verse Rappers 2:15-3:30pm Student Center basement. Transgender Day of Remembrance
LGBTA at 12:00pm in the Amersfort Lounge (SUBO, 2nd Floor) for Brooklyn College’s first memorial ceremony for Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR).  TDoR is a day to memorialize those who have been killed as a result of the hatred or fear of transgender and gender non-conforming people, and acts to bring attention to the continued violence endured by the transgender community. The event will include a reading of the names of those who lost their lives during the previous year, followed by a discussion/check-in of our responses to this day and the horrific acts of violence perpetuated against transgender and gender non-conforming people.
