Transgender Day of Remembrance

Tuesday, November 20
Peter McKinnon Building, 6:00pm

Transgender Day of Remembrance is a day to memorialize those we have lost as a result of anti-transgender violence and to raise public awareness to the continued violence that the transgender community faces today.

Join the USSU Pride Centre as we call on all our allies to step forward and stand in vigil beside us.

This will be followed by a cake and tea at the Internation Student and Study Abroad Centre.

~Candles Included~
