The Audre Lorde Project and TransJustice will present Transgender Day of Remembrance 2018, taking place at St. John’s Lutheran Church on Monday, November 19, 2018 from 6pm to 9pm, and featuring conversations and performances in memoriam of those who have passed, but are not forgotten, in our communities. In our current political climate, it is more important than ever to honor the work and resilient legacies of community members who fought, and are fighting, tirelessly for self-determination and survival in the face of overbearing violence and structural oppression. On this day, we confront erasure by honoring their work and lives.
“Sometimes we are blessed with being able to choose the time, and the arena, and the manner of our revolution, but more usually we must do battle where we are standing.” --Audre Lorde, Sister Outsider: Essays and Speeches.
The Audre Lorde Project (ALP) is committed to bridging struggle across intersections and ending all forms of oppression, including that of the Prison Industrial Complex (PIC). We support sharing ourselves and our stories to connect our communities. As a progressive organization seeking radical social justice, we recognize the need to strategize, mobilize, and organize to move important and necessary work forward. We endorse this mass bailout because we understand the real impact of the PIC and that people deserve to be with loved ones and at a home while they wait for a trial.
