Find New Paths to Resilience with
Transgender Awareness Week
Join the Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity as we stand with the GLBT Center to observe Transgender Awareness Week from Monday, November 18 to Friday, November 22, 2019. The impetus for this week of events is Transgender Day of Remembrance, a global, annual observance for transgender individuals who were murdered over the past year. The Transgender Day of Remembrance Memorial Sculpture will be on display in the GLBT Center all week. Please visit us in Suite 5230 of Talley Student Union to pay your respects to those our community has lost.

As we pay our respects, know that it is our goal — and the reason we continually work to raise awareness — that not one person more will suffer or be killed for simply being who they are, the most fundamental of human rights.
