November 20th is Transgender Day of Remembrance

A single candle burns above a transgender symbol. The text at the top reads Twelth Annual Transgender Day of Remembrance. The text at the bottom reads: Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it. - George SantayanaWe set aside time today to honor our transgender and gender non-conforming siblings who have been brutally murdered, injured, harassed, and driven to suicide.

We ask that you take time to take the following pledge:
I commit to supporting transgender and gender-nonconforming youth by making a commitment to:

  • Not use gender-biased language or transphobic slurs.
  • Not assume anyone’s gender identity and ask respectfully how a person identifies.
  • Respect the diversity of all gender identities and expressions.

By making this commitment, I am working to make my school and/or community safer for all students, regardless of gender identity or gender expression.
