FROM THE UW Q CENTER: Trans Day of Remembrance Trans Day of Remembrance (TDOR) is an annual event held on November 20 to commemorate the lives that were lost in acts of violence against the trans community but also celebrating trans identity, trans individuals, and celebrating the lives that they live. TDOR is held in November to honor Rita Hester, whose murder in 1998 kicked off the "Remembering Our Dead" web project and a San Francisco candlelight vigil in 1999. Rita Hester's murder, like most trans murder cases, has yet to be solved. Although not every person represented during the Day of Remembrance self-identified as transgender/trans, each was a victim of violence based on bias against transgender and gender non-conforming people. Join the Q Center for our event-filled week celebrating and remembering
trans lives: *Kick-off and Crafternoon Delights*
Nov. 18, Tuesday at 12:00PM | Q Center (HUB 315)
Join us in this week's Crafternoon Delights as we make signs we will be
using for the vigils we will be doing. We will be making origami cranes all
week. It's said that if you fold a thousand paper cranes, you get a wish, so we hope that by the end of the week, we can wish for a brighter future for our community. *Campus Vigil and Walk*
