Volunteer for the Day of Remembrance!

The 12th annual Transgender Day of Remembrance is just around the corner and they’re looking for volunteers to help make it the successful event it always is. If you want to help out, here’s the info:

On November 20th, San Francisco will observe the 12th annual Transgender Day of Remembrance. Our communities will gather on the steps of City Hall from 6-7:30pm to listen to community leaders talk about violence against and within the transgender community; and at 7:30 we will march through the Tenderloin to the Ark of Refuge where we’ll celebrate the lives of those we’ve lost with food, dancing and performances from 8-10pm. More information is available at: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=125523114171883
