TDOR reminds Americans to honor transgender people who lost their lives in 2018 and commit to change
WASHINGTON — Freedom for All Americans is joining activists and organizations around the globe in commemorating Transgender Day of Remembrance today. The day provides an opportunity to pause and pay tribute to the transgender people who have lost their lives over the last year to transphobic violence and discrimination.
Freedom for All Americans’ CEO, Masen Davis, released the following statement:
“As a movement, we’ve had successes – particularly this year – in educating Americans about what it means to be transgender, and about the basic humanity of transgender people. But we must do more. We must amplify and grow support for basic dignity and respect for transgender lives. We must also pass laws protecting people from discrimination based on gender identity and expression. So as we remember the many trans lives lost to violence, let’s commit to taking action to make sure no other transgender people suffer simply because of who they are.”
