Celebrated annually in November, the week of November 13-19 is an opportunity for transgender people and allies to lift up the unique needs of the transgender community. It’s a time when stories and experiences are shared, advocacy moves to the forefront and community members are urged to help address and prevent prejudice, discrimination and violence that affects our transgender neighbors. Transgender Awareness Week also leads up to Transgender Day of Remembrance on Sunday, November 20 that honors the memory of transgender people whose lives were lost in acts of antitransgender hate and violence.
