Trans liberation is our liberation. Yesterday and for the entirety of our occupation, Occupy Harvard remains in solidarity with all people struggling for recognition and justice, and we, too, took this day to stand in vigil for victims of anti-transgender violence.
Occupy Harvard stands in solidarity with all people struggling for equality and against oppression. Yesterday was the 13th International Transgender Day of Remembrance, a day for remembrance and memorialization for transgender-identified people killed due to hate crimes. According to the Trans Murder Monitoring Project, over 750 people have died from anti-transgender violence in the past three years alone.
