November 20, 2014 is the Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR).

TDOR is the day when we come together across the world to remember and honor those who have been murdered because they were perceived to be gender diverse.
In Austin TENT hosts the vigil held to commemorate TDOR.
In years past we have had between 150-200 people in attendance.
Planning this vigil requires the help of many hands and hearts.
We will be holding monthly meetings, however there are many tasks that can be done without attending a meeting, if you want to help but can’t attend a meeting please contact
This year’s TDOR chair is Stephanie Martinez.
