Add to Calendar 2020-11-20 17:00:00 2020-11-20 19:00:00 America/Chicago Virtual Trans Day of Resilience/Remembrance (TDOR) This is a space for Trans/GNC people to come together to heal, share, and celebrate for Trans Day of Resilience/Remembrance. Main Library

This is a space for Trans/GNC people to come together to heal, share, and celebrate for Trans Day of Resilience/Remembrance.

"November 20 marks Trans Day of Remembrance, an annual memorial for our murdered kin. The day gives us space to grieve the siblings—overwhelmingly Black trans women and femmes—who were pushed out of this world too soon.

Our rebellious mourning recommits us to the living. We refuse to forget or forfeit our power, even in the face of epidemic violence. We remember: we are pure possibility. Our freedom dreams could set the whole world free." 

--Forward Together

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EPL is partnering with ETHS, Northwestern's Rainbow Alliance, and community activists for an Evanston-specific Trans Day of Resilience/Remembrance.

TDOR is a space by and for trans people to heal and celebrate together. Evanston Trans/GNC POC to the front!

There will be an open mic portion (sign up here) where all trans/GNC people are invited to share stories, poetry, songs etc.  Trans POC and individuals connected to the Evanston community will have priority.

There is space for individuals to submit anonymously and have another read what is shared if this is preferred.  Zoom safety and privacy are a priority. 

Coordinated Art Event:

We will be having posters from Forward Together on display and available for free at the 3rd floor of the Evanston Public Library from 11/20-12/20.  They are available for free digital download at all times.

Emerging Evanstonian Trans artists, musicians, and creatives are heartily encouraged to submit propsals for paid exhibits and/or workshops at EPL year-round.  Please submit artistic proposals to Halka at eplart@cityofevanston.org.
