Trans Remembrance Week

Women Organized to Respond to Life-Threatening Diseases (WORLD) would like to acknowledge Transgender Awareness Week (11/14-11/20). W.O.R.L.D serves all self-identified women (which is inclusive of Transwomen) living with or affected by HIV/AIDS. W.O.R.L.D serves as a safe space for Trans women. During Transgender Awareness Week, W.O.R.L.D celebrates Transgender individuals and all of their accomplishments. Additionally, W.O.R.L.D celebrates the following Transgender elected officials:

Gerri Cannon, Somersworth School Board.

Phillipe Cunningham, Minneapolis City Council, 4th Ward.

Danica Roem, Virginia House of Delegates, 13th District.

Andrea Jenkins, Minneapolis City Council, 8th Ward.

Stephe Koontz, Doraville City Council, 3rd District.

Lisa Middleton, Palm Springs City Council.

On TRANSGENDER DAY OF REMEMBRANCE (Nov.20th), W.O.R.L.D remembers those lost to anti Trans violence in 2017. We say their names to keep them with us, and to remember their legacy. Would you say their names with us?
