What is Transgender Awareness Week?

It is a week long, annual celebration of the transgender community meant to raise awareness, educate allies, and commemorate those in the community who face, or have lost their lives, due to transphobic violence.  The week culminates in a Transgender Day of Awareness Service.  Transgender Day of Remembrance is an annual observance on November 20th that honors the memory of those whose lives were lost in anti-transgender violence.  This year is of particular consequence considering the current political and social issues that the transgender community is facing.
