Today, November 20th 2015, marks the 17th Transgender Day of Remembrance. SWOP Denver joins trans communities, locally and globally, in honoring and remembering the lives of those we have lost to violence, hatred, stigma, oppression and fear.
Every year, many of the trans lives lost to murder and violence are also the lives of sex workers. We must continue to fight together for the rights of trans individuals- especially trans women and especially trans women of color- and for the rights of trans sex workers. We are committed to creating a world in which basic human rights and safety are taken as a given for trans individuals and sex workers everywhere.
