Transgender Awareness Week + MAL Fund
Every year between November 13th - 19th, the week before Transgender Day of Remembrance on November 20th, people and organizations around the world participate in Transgender Awareness Week to help increase visibility about the Trans experience, celebrate triumphs and address hardships members of the community face.
Transgender Day of Remembrance is an annual observance that honors the memory of the Trans people whose lives were lost in acts of anti-Transgender violence. Devastatingly, 2021 marks the deadliest year recorded with at least 46 Transgender people killed in the US alone. This week and every week, we need to work together to advance advocacy against the prejudice, discrimination, and violence affecting the Trans community. This is also a time to celebrate Trans joy, resilience, and victories, to pause to honor the history of Trans activism and welcome informed allies.
Please consider showing your solitary by supporting this campaign. All funds raised will go to the following three incredible organizations, who are making a difference in the everyday lives of Trans community members locally and across the United States through advocacy and empowerment.
