AUDRE LORDE PROJECT | TRANSJUSTICE
TRANS DAY OF REMEMBRANCE: AFFIRMATIONS
We want to recognize, hold up, and join in solidarity with our imprisoned and detained community members who face lack of access to necessary medicine, violence at the hands of guards and other folks in the prison and psychiatric systems, and lack of protection and agency around pronouns and gender identity. We honor and celebrate you and your resiliency though you cannot be with us tonight. Your community supports you and loves you.
We want to recognize, hold up, and join in solidarity with our documented and undocumented immigrant community members who face incarceration, deportation, and brutality at the hands of Immigrant and Customs Enforcement, the NYPD, and the larger community. We honor and celebrate your resiliency. Your community supports you and loves you.
We want to recognize, grieve and honor all of the trans and gender non-conforming people who were murdered in brutal acts of hate violence, as well as the people we lost to the violences of homelessness, lack of healthcare, and lack of resources. We keep you in our hearts and minds as we continue to fight for Trans and gender non-conforming people of color liberation, and liberation for all peoples. We honor and celebrate you tonight. Your community loves and misses you. Read more.
