Transgender Day of Remembrance
We invite you to join us for a candlelight service on November 20th to help to honor and to remember the many lives from here in Maryland and from around the world that we have lost from our great human race due to hate crimes. These people were just living their lives when somebody came along and decided to use their hate towards Trans people and end their precious lives. As Humanists we are allies to the Transgender community and this year for the first time we will have our very own Hugh Taft-Morales taking part in this interfaith service and giving Humanists a voice at this event. It will take place November 20 at 6:00 p.m. at the First Unitarian Church of Baltimore, 12 W. Franklin St., Baltimore, Maryland 21201. We hope to see you in the crowd as we light candles to remember all of these lives that we have lost and that we will find more drive to fight for the rights of Transgender people here in Maryland. This event is free but a collection will be taken for donations to the Transgender Response Team. For information e-mail Lucas McCahill at firstname.lastname@example.org or see her after the Sunday’s talk.
Note to parents: there will be descriptions, during the reading of the names, of how these lives were taken which may not be appropriate for children.
