12-12:30pm: Transgender Students and Employees Share their Stories 
11am-2pm: Drop in to view the exhibit and vigil 

Student Center Room 320

Transgender Day of Remembrance is an annual global commemoration of transgender people who have lost their lives to violence in the past year. Everyone is invited to join in honoring their lives and learning how we can support trans people in our community.

This year, transgender Georgia Tech students and employees will share their stories of where they have found hope and resilience, in themselves and in their families, friendships, relationships, and communities. All members of the Georgia Tech community are invited to come hear these powerful and important stories at 12:00-12:30pm. 

The storytellers will begin at noon. This brave group of students and employees will each spend a few minutes telling their stories. This portion of the event will last for about 30 minutes. Those who can't make it for the stories are strongly encouraged to visit the room during the open drop-in hours between 11am and 2pm to view the Trans Day of Remembrance exhibit and view the vigil honoring the trans lives we have lost this year. Attendees will also receive information about trans-inclusive resources and will be given a chance to write messages of support for the trans community.

There will be handouts and information on how we can practice allyship to the transgender community on campus and off, sign-ups for spring Trans 101 trainings, and opportunities to discuss and reflect on what you have learned.

No need to RSVP - just show up for as long as you want. The room will be open for three hours total.
